He has placed in many competitions in the US, Canada and China. Thomas also plays a key role as a partner in Sandsational Sand Sculpting. "It is important to me to make a sculpture that has meaning and is interesting to adults but at the same time can still be enjoyed by children." "What I enjoy about sand sculpting is that if I do a good job I can touch people's emotions."
