Thomas is a double graduate from the University of Texas at Austin. In 2016, he earned his B.A. in Anthropology and Iberian/Latin American Language & Culture. He then worked in Austin, Texas, as a paralegal before earning in J.D. from the University of Texas School of Law in 2021. In law school, he served as an associate editor for the Texas Hispanic Journal of Law & Policy.

Through his professional and academic career, he learned how inaccessible the law is for most people outside of the professional legal community. For him, this inaccessibility is fundamental flaw in the legal system. He believes that everyone should be able to understand the law that governs our lives and society. He now uses his love for research and writing to help make the law accessible for the people it impacts most.
