Thomas Solomon Gray


Thomas Solomon Gray

Thomas Solomon Gray is an entrepreneur, composer, poet, pianist, vocalist, director and educator. He lives in East London with his better half close to the world-famous street, Brick Lane. As a coffee-fanatic, foodie and obsessive TV series watcher he has no football skills whatsoever.

He’s an aspiring photographer, cinematographer, painter and fiction-author and is keen to develop his culinary skills. Enthused by both his students and colleagues, he’s grateful to be pursing his love of the arts.

As a practitioner of “lean” methodology in recent years, his musical explorations have never been so captivating and fulfilling. In his pursuit for happiness in both music and life in general, he’s trying to convince his spouse that they get a dog.
