Since 4 years of age Thomas has been on stage. His early years were greatly influenced by teachers Grant Swift (Australian Tap Wizard and Pioneer) and Christopher Horsey (Tap Dogs founding member). Before long, he had fallen in love with tap dance.
From 2010 to 2013 Thomas was a principal dancer with Tapestry Dance Company. Based in Austin, Texas it was then the only full time professional dance company in North America specialising in tap dance. He owes much to Artistic director Acia Gray and the dancers with whom he shared those 3 years.
Until 2019 he was living mostly out of a suitcase, based briefly in Barcelona, Rome, and Reykjavik Iceland whilst travelling to work in festivals and various projects.
He is currently in Melbourne studying a Bachelor of Fine Arts at Monash University.
