About Thomas

Thomas is an award-winning screenwriter who began his writing journey when he secured a spot in Film Independent's Project:Involve Filmmaker Program. He still remains an active voting member of the nonprofit arts organization and their Independent Spirit Awards. His involvement with them led to a membership with the Writer's Guild of America.

His technical directing duties for a national sports network led to an Academy of Television Arts & Sciences membership, where he served on Emmy judging panels for Outstanding Comedy/Drama Series. He also served as a judge for the Organization of Black Screenwriter's Screenplay Competition.

His horror script "Enter At Own Risk" was nominated for the Best Unproduced Screenplay Award at RIP International Horror Film Festival, Independent Horror Movie Awards, and Shockfest Film Festival. This wasn't his first appearance at Shockfest. "Visible Scars", a film he co-wrote, won the coveted Best Feature Award. "Enter At Own Risk" also won the Star Award at the International Horror Hotel Film Festival. It won the Green-Light Horror Award at Die Laughing Film Festival. It also won the Best Screenplay Award at Jive Azz Film Festival and Best Feature Film Horror Script Award at the American Grindhouse Film Festival.

His drama screenplay "Mya's Truth" became a winner at WILDsound Writing Festival- an international screenplay competition. It was a winning screenplay at the Los Angeles Independent Film Festival and Nevada International Film Festival. The script won the Best Dramatic Screenplay Award at Hollywood Boulevard Film Festival. It was also an Official Selection/Finalist screenplay at the National Black Film Festival, Las Vegas Screenplay Contest, and Hollywood Screenplay Contests.

His more family-friendly screenplay "Mr. and Mrs. Santa" became an award-winning finalist at the Los Angeles Screenplay Contest. It was also a top ten semi-finalist at the Hollywood Black Film Festival. It was a quarter-finalist at both the Screencraft Family-Friendly Screenplay Competition and PAGE Awards. The script was the Family Film Bronze Award Winner at the Hollywood Screenplay Contest and the Grand Prize Winner, in that same category, at the Las Vegas Screenplay Contest.
