Tom Dirlis arrived in Prague in the spring of 1999 and fell in love with the city’s charm and mystique at first sight. He felt compelled to stay and began supporting himself by writing numerous travel and opinion pieces for local publications, as well as marketing copy for multinational corporations. In 2000, he traveled to Budapest and fell in love all over again.
More than a decade later, Tom continues to write articles, editorials, and copy, as well as plays and short stories. He was a finalist in Prague’s first playwriting competition in 2007. His most recent play was performed in New York in the summer of 2013. He is currently working on his first novel.
