Ever since he was a young child, Thomas has been interested in words and cartoon images. Throughout his careers as a restaurant cook, and truck driver, Thomas always maintained creative outside interests and projects.

In the mid-1980's, Thomas created a copyrighted cartoon strip titled "Urban Street Guitarist" that was regularly published in several small Connecticut newspapers.

As the leader of a Hartford, CT, area new wave band in the 1980's and 1990's, Thomas and his band mates performed regularly at a Chinese restaurant in Hartford.

Since the late 1990's, Thomas has been producing bright and colorful, acrylic paintings. Many of the paintings are food-related, and have been exhibited at various galleries, stores, restaurants and libraries in the Hartford, Connecticut region.

In 2006, Thomas began his career as an online content writer. Specializing in food and restaurant-related content, he has written more than 3,400 published articles.

Thomas's creative-non-fiction writing has also been published by the Hartford Courant newspaper.
