Thomas A. Smiley.
Despite devoting most of his time to engineering matters, Thomas has been floating around his hometown Indianapolis scene of comedy and acting for a decade, cutting his teeth mostly in small comedy clubs and hamming it up in commercials. He currently resides in Cincinnati due to a clerical error and poor fact checking. So while he’s here, he has decided to make the best of it and dabble in a bit of the entertainment and make a few people laugh.
The mercurial nature of Thomas makes for an eccentric collection of hobbies. Generally he can be found swing dancing any given week, but like a Jack of all Trades there’s practically nothing he won’t pick up and run with for novelty’s sake. Thomas can best be described as a blind man in an orgy: he’s just feeling things out.
