Thomas loves to refuel his batteries by spending time with family and friends, likes traveling to his favorite cities, L.A. and Hong Kong, and enjoys a good glass of wine. He gets his best ideas when working outdoors- surrounded by nature – mostly in the Adirondacks, New Zealand, or in his home in the Palatine woods.
