GET TO KNOW TOMÁS

Where do you gain your confidence?

I gain confidence from learning – either for the sake of learning or learning from my mistakes. Having a new skill or method to tackle an issue, be it serious or frivolous, inspires my confidence.

What is on your bucket list?

The list is constantly getting edited, but two items are to visit East Asia and celebrate either St. Patrick’s Day in Ireland or Oktoberfest in Germany.

If you could have any celebrity live next door to you, who would it be?

Ira Glass. In my imagination, he’d always have a great story to share. And hopefully I’d score early releases of This American Life too!

If you had no fear, what would you do?

Snakes paralyze me with fear and anxiety, so I’d probably walk into a zoo’s reptile house.

Where would you live, if it couldn’t be Austin?

If I had linguistic talent, I’d live in the picturesque shores of Southern Thailand.
