About

Me, in front of some joyous holiday balls.

Hi there! I’m eD! Thomas. I write, podcast, make stupid jokes on Twitter, and spend far too much time thinking about technology, pop culture, and comedy. I was once on Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? and got to hug Terry Crews twice, which is one of the finest achievements of my life.

eD! and Terry Crews, hugging. It's magical.
The best.

I’m a guy with a lot of thoughts about things. Sometimes those thoughts make sense. More frequently than not, they don’t.

Either way, here they are!

Background Stuff

I was born and raised on Long Island, which is where I still live, thanks to its proximity to Manhattan and because my dog, Sunshine, is here.

Professional Stuff

I used to work as a freelance IT/web development consultant, but slowly discovered I wasn’t a huge fan of consulting in general (or IT in particular). I now work for Automattic, the company behind WordPress.com, as a Happiness Engineer, which basically combines every last thing I’ve enjoyed in my working life into one nifty package. It’s swell.

Naturally, you should be aware that the thoughts and opinions expressed here in no way represent the views of my employer or, if we’re being honest, myself, depending on when you read them. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
