Thomas is an adventure sport enthusiast, an avid snowmobiler, snowboarder, snowshoer and scuba diver. With his giant love of snow-sports, he was naturally drawn North. “Ever since I first came to the Arctic in 2002 for a scuba trip with beluga and narwhal near Arctic Bay, the Arctic bug bit me…hard. The beauty of the land, working with local Inuit, and exploring one of man’s least known frontiers appeals to me immensely. I am very passionate about the Arctic and want to share and show the rest of the world what a beautiful and amazing place it is.”
As Arctic Kingdom’s Expedition Director, Thomas is responsible for pre-expedition reconnaissance, logistical arrangements, food management and preparation. His ultimate goal for every expedition is to provide guests with a seemingly effortless Arctic experience in a comfortable, worry-free environment. Among his greatest accomplishments is snowmobiling the length of Baffin Island and developing Arctic Kingdom’s Nunavik (Northern Quebec) programs.
Thomas has led a multitude of high-profile film projects and expeditions throughout Arctic Canada, with a special emphasis on Baffin Island and Nunavik. His film project work includes Universal Picture’s “Everyone Loves Whales” (Nunavik, 2011), Nippon Broadcast Corp’s [Japan] “Riddles at the end of the Earth” (Nunavik, 2010), Cuatro [Spain] Fundacion Mar Balear’s “Desafio Extremo” (Bylot Island, 2009), Munwha Broadcast Corp’s [Korea] “Tears in the Arctic” (Northwest Passage, 2008), CTV’s “Valerie Pringle” (Foxe Basin, 2005) and TF1 France’s “Ushuaia Nature – Le repaire de la Licorne” (Northwest Passage, 2004.)
