Thomas's Profile Picture
Thomas Blanton

Thomas Blanton is a current MBA student at the Fowler College of Business at SDSU. He has an undergraduate degree in journalism and a master’s in mass communication. At Lavin, he’s responsible for writing content and formulating communication strategies. He’s new to the business world but approaches it as business as usual.

In another life, he toiled as a financial and investigative reporter. He spent three years in D.C. covering politics and business, the latter with Kiplinger’s Personal Finance magazine. You can often find him at the movies, usually perched in the front section where seemingly no one but him likes to sit. What that says about him, he believes, is that he likes to be closer to the action. Working at the Lavin Center, with it’s buzzy, fast-paced atmosphere, he feels like he has a front row seat.
