Due to his CP, Thomas uses a power wheelchair to get around and speaks with an iPad. In May of 2017, Thomas performed his one-man show, It Is What It Is, at NYC’s One Festival and won First Prize. The show was then produced for a successful five-night run at the Flamboyan Theater. Tom also participated in the acclaimed mentoring program, Broadway Dreams.
