HI, I'M THOMAS — A FORMER MAGAZINE WRITER, CURRENT STRATEGIST AT BBDO NY, AND ALL-AROUND COCKTAIL ENTHUSIAST. HERE IS SOME MORE ABOUT ME:
MY PATH TO ADVERTISING began on the New York City subway. On my commutes, I'd kill time by ranking the ads. Eventually, I grew tired of working unpaid as an amateur ad critic and enrolled in the VCU Brandcenter. It's one of the best decisions I've ever made.
I WAS PREVIOUSLY a writer for publications like Maxim, V Magazine, and L'Officiel USA. My beats included pop culture, menswear, and Kardashian family drama. I'm not ashamed to admit I enjoy peering into the lives of stars and unearthing all the messy details they don't want us to know.
I'VE ALWAYS HAD a mildly unhealthy interest in people. Living in Texas, New York, Argentina, and now Virginia has exposed me to the many different ways they view and navigate the world. I still get to investigate culture, but strategy helps me get even closer to the everyday people shaping it.
WHEN I'M NOT furiously scribbling on a whiteboard, I'm LARPing as a bohemian. I enjoy art-house movies, countercultural ideas, and anything served in a highball glass. My hard-working Southern parents often wonder what went wrong.
