“Made with Purpose”
– Self

Young, determined and unwavering zeal. Thomas was born on the small island of Cape Breton in Nova Scotia where he began his artistic pursuits. At 16, this hunger to perform, and persistent work ethic brought him to Toronto, where he began his professional career. Thomas is a versatile performer with training in film and stage acting, a plethora of dance disciplines, singing, and several musical instruments. He has trained across the continent with LB Acting Studio, Armstrong Acting Studio, Cadence School of Ballet, The Male Initiative and Mather Dance Company (Shannon Mather, Blake McGrath).

Thomas’ film and TV credits include a leading role in season 2 of Backstage, (the fresh and celebrated series on Family Channel and Disney Worldwide), Center Stage: On Point (Lifetime, supporting lead), Guillermo del Toro’s: The Strain (FX), IRL: The Series (Bell Media), pre-recorded content for Imagine Dragons’ North American: ‘Smoke + Mirrors Tour, and the 2013 & 2015 Much Music Video Awards, to name a few.

Aside from his passion for film, Thomas has proven himself to be at home on stage as well. Some highlights have been dancing with Janet Jackson in the Toronto show of her latest world tour Unbreakable, Legends of Rock n’ Roll (Drayton Theatre), and the prestigious 2014 Dizzy Feet Foundation Charity Gala in Hollywood. Other credits include: MAC Cosmetics, Cineplex, Toronto International Film Festival, IOGO; and print ads for Roots Canada and the Canadian National Exhibition.

Thomas has built a notable online presence through his short film projects and social media platforms. As a producer, Thomas recently held an event called “Interpose” advocating for Dancer’s Rights in Canada. An evening featuring some of Canada’s finest choreographers and dance activists, that has left an impact on Toronto’s dance scene.

From stage to screen, Thomas shows no sign of slowing down, always pursuing growth and art. All while remembering his mantra; “Made With Purpose”.
