Interim Digital Marketing Manager
Thomas spent a decade in the advertising industry before joining the nonprofit sector. Social media had only been around for a couple of years, and Thomas was interested in how nonprofits could harness its potential to communicate with supporters. One of the first things he did to further his education was to join NTEN as a member and fly to San Francisco for the NTC. He didn't know who anyone was going in, but he's still friends with many of the people he met there.
Back in New York City, he helped reboot the dormant 501 Tech Club and served as co-organizer for a few years before passing the keys to the Facebook group off to the next generation of organizers.
Thomas has worked as a corporate relations manager for United Way of New York City, the project director for communications firm Big Duck, and communications director of Catskill Animal Sanctuary, a refuge for farmed animals in New York's Hudson Valley. He now works as a consultant with a focus on fundraising and donor communications.
He lives in Brooklyn where he spends his free time planning a year-end trip to Australia and New Zealand while eying a summer visit to Scandinavia.
