Once Thomas was introduced to Ruby on Rails, he was instantly hooked. It was what he'd always been looking for: a framework that's both beautiful and concise, which makes life exponentially easier as a developer. Thomas is permanently on the lookout to take advantage of any opportunity to improve his chops as a Rails developer. In his free time, he is a die-hard rock music fan, and still holds onto a dream of forming his own band outside of work. He also spent quite a lot of time learning Japanese.
