About Thomas

Sydney-based manager, technician, and designer Thomas is an aspiring creative with a passion for new and challenging work spanning from theatre to game development.

After completing his Certificate III in Live Production and Services, Thomas has spent his time further developing and sharpening his skills and interest in sound, lighting, video systems/design, as well as a range of managerial skills.

While his interests are currently tailored to lighting design/systems, he is eager for the opportunity to work on any ‘bizarre’ or ‘unconventional’ projects. When he is not diving headfirst into projects, Thomas spends his time developing software and other tools to fill gaps in the theatrical and music industries or making music.
