Mr. Thomas has a diverse background spanning nearly 20 years of promoting a sustainably built environment in industries such as Construction Project Management, Architecture & Design and Business Administration. After transferring from the University of Nevada, Reno (UNR), his commitment to the implementation of sustainable building principles started upon graduating from the School of Architecture at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV) in 1997. He earned his joint Bachelor of Science Degree in Landscape Architecture and Business Administration. His passion for sustainability quickly became public, when in 1999, he served as a State Assemblyman in the Nevada State Legislature. He introduced initiatives relative to Smart Growth, creating the Nevada Center for Sustainable Living (NCSL) and a Public Building Recycling mandate, with the latter being successful.
