Thomas spent his childhood years as an altar server for his local church St Gerard Parish. Him and his family volunteered and assisted the church after school hours and on weekends. In his pre-teen years Thomas began to show a passionate talent in music specifically, guitar. He played the guitar with ease and comfort. It was undeniably his way of expressing his unique self with pure joy on his face. After graduating highschool, Thomas attended the University of Winnipeg where he enrolled into the Criminal Justice Faculty.
