About Thom

Thom Dunn is a Boston-based writer, musician, homebrewer, and new media artist. He enjoys Oxford commas, metaphysics, and romantic clichés (epecially when they involve whiskey and/or robots). A graduate of Emerson College, his plays have been performed in Boston and Hollywood. His first play, Absolution, was originally published in THREAD Magazine in 2008, and his since received several productions, including being recognized as one the best of Boston short plays in 2010. His newest full-length, True Believers was recently awarded with a workshop fellowship at the Berkshire Fringe Festival. His comic books have been published by GrayHaven Comics. By day, Thom is a mild-mannered Web & New Media Manager at the Huntington Theatre Company and blogs regularly for a number of websites, including Quirk Publishing and FiveByFiveHundred.com. He grew up outside of New Haven, in the same town as Eli Whitney and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson (but not at the same time). He regularly directs and performs as guitarist and keyboardist for Boston’s premiere all-male Lady Gaga glam rock cover band, ALEJANDRO AND THE FAME, as well as a number of other musical projects.

Thom was once paid $200 to dress up like Spider-Man and sign autographs at a Wal-Mart. This remains the single greatest moment of his life, despite his best efforts to top it.
