Thomas always enjoyed extreme sports from a young age. Snowboarding and skiing
all over the U.S. and Europe, his love for adventure didn't stop there. He pursued his
pilot's license and fulfilled his dream to become a commercial pilot and flight instructor.

In 2012 Thomas signed up for his first half marathon on his quest to get back into shape.
The following year he completed his first triathlon which fueled his passion for endurance
sports. After participating in the Tobay sprint triathlon with a "blazing" 800 meter swim
time of 43 minutes he was hooked for good. Since then his focus has been triathlons.

As a triathlete, Thomas understands the importance of being part of a masters swim
team. In 2016 he joined Excel Swimming and greatly improved his swimming technique.
In 2017 Thomas completed his first Ironman race with an impressive 55 minute swim!
Since then, he has completed numerous endurance races from 5K to marathon runs,
ocean swim events, and sprint triathlon to full Ironman distance triathlons.

During the summer Thomas frequently swims open water on the south shore of Long
Island and organizes "no-swimmer-left-behind" group swims. He is a firm believer that
that you need to spend time in the pool to improve open water swimming capabilities.
He enjoys helping others by sharing his pool and open water swimming knowledge.

Thomas' dream is to one day qualify for the Ironman World Championships in Kona, HI.
