Thomas was born and raised in Long Beach, and graduated from UC San Diego with a BA in International Studies with a focus on Political Science. While still an undergraduate, Thomas worked in government and community affairs doing advocacy work for underserved communities.
To supplement his income, Thomas worked as a juice barista and a coffee barista where his gifts for customer service were honed. That quality is what brought Thomas to our attention, and we are happy to have such a customer-oriented person on our team.
Thomas recently completed a UCLA extension course in Personal Essay writing to help develop his style. At home, Thomas dabbles in mixology, and develops custom cocktails for friends and family. Thomas speaks Japanese, and studies Italian in his free time, and he loves cooking French classics, Japanese and Chinese cuisine, Indian curries and he makes a mean Bolognese sauce.
