Thomas is originally from Chicago, IL. Before training at Epic, he worked as a locomotive engineer, operating commuter trains in and out of New York City. In his free time, he became a private pilot and flew for fun, but always had the “What if?” in the back of his mind about becoming a professional pilot. After enough daydreaming about it, he decided to change careers and began flight training full time at Epic. Aside from flying, he’s a foodie, enjoys hanging out at the beach, watching ’90s cartoons, and playing his bass and keyboard.
