As an assistant to Guy, Thomas was responsible for many post-production tasks such as cataloging and cue sheets, and would occasionally take on additional arranging for live sessions.

It was through this mentorship relationship that helped Thomas gain real work experience working with networks sptouch as Hallmark, Lifetime and SyFy. Under Claude’s Supervision, Thomas would provide assistant writing, arranging and Music editing under tight deadlines!

These projects have all found their way to major streaming platforms such as Netflix, Amazon Prime video and Hulu. Some titles include Hope Ranch (Christian/Country), I Am Vengeance; Retaliation (Action), War Cake (Drama), Love and Coffee (Rom-Com), and two films starring Eddie Griffin; Bad President (Political Satire) and Coming to America (Comedy).
Most Recently, he has contributed music to a globally distributed production music library called, CrimeSonics, where he worked as a co-contributor under the mentorship of composer Dan Brown Jr. Through the experience, Thomas had gotten a better sense of how to better produce music for Film and TV.
