He and Amy also run their own freelance editing business – Cissell Ink
*Yevtushenko was friends with a professor at Thomas’s college. He was studying Russian at the time and Yevtushenko decided he wanted the Russian students to read with him on stage at his performance.
**This was purely coincidental. Thomas’s host took him to dinner at a restaurant in Mons, which was Elio De Rupo’s favorite spot. He was also the mayor of Mons at the time. He’d had a pie thrown at him earlier that day and was having dinner with some friends. Thomas is still not sure what kind of pie it was though.
