After a life full of unlikely circumstances, Thomas was moved to leave his day job to create documentaries that tell stories of hope when people are faced with unthinkable circumstances. He produced and directed Waiting for Mamu about the life of Pushpa Basnet (2012 CNN Hero of the Year) who removes children from the prisons of Nepal, and Storied Streets about the real lives of America’s homeless.

Thomas is currently in production on a documentary on the foster care system and homeless teens. He is also working on the series, A Blacksmith’s Revolution, that explores the impact of the world’s most environmentally toxic hot spots on children.
