A Los Angeles native, Thomas Reyes was raised by both his Filipino-immigrant parents and American television. In the 2nd grade, his family moved to Las Vegas and lived there for 7 years before realizing casinos aren’t the best place for a 10-year-old and returning to LA.
His family eventually settled in Silver Lake and, after graduating from UCLA, instead of going to law school, he became a video game tester. At night, he took writing classes at UCLA Extension and improv at iO West.
For 4 years, he worked in reality TV development. He has written for the Disney ABC Talent Showcase, the CBS Diversity Sketch Workshop, and co-wrote the BuzzFeed video series Ask an Asian, which has over 4 million views on YouTube.
He also ate a ton of Olive Garden and ended up on NPR.
He is an alumnus of the Warner Bros. Writers’ Workshop and is currently Staff Writer on the new show American Woman on the Paramount Network.
