Always moving, Thom's biggest passion is creating dances. Thom began crafting in earnest as a trainee with Milwaukee Ballet, seeking out opportunities in the Wisconsin and Chicagoland area over his tenure with the company.
Since that point, Thom has created over a dozen works on various dance companies and schools across the United States. Thom's work can be seen in the active repertoire of Danceworks Chicago, Grand Rapids Ballet, The Big Muddy Dance Company, and Milwaukee Ballet II. Additional works have been created or restaged on Ballet Nebraska, San Diego Ballet, Island Moving Company, Consuming Kinetics Dance Company, Convergence Ballet Company, Lake Arts Project, Southern Illinois University of Edwardsville, and Webster University.
Thom's creations have been featured on two different companies at the prestigious Spring To Dance Festival, hosted by Dance St. Louis. He has won awards for Best Choreography through Youth America Grand Prix, the World Ballet Competition, and the Dance Under The Stars Competition in Palm Desert, California.
Most recently, Thom's work was featured in Grand Rapids Ballet's Best of Movemedia program, featuring his work, "You Gotta Be Kidding Me!, alongside some of America's most prestigious choreographic artists.
