About Me


Life's short, but a long, long journey!


After have been working as Marketing Manager Northern Europe at FOX Mobile Group in Berlin for almost 3 years, I was ready to do something completely different! So I moved to Colombia! I stayed on the ranch of the Sucre department's biggest producer of RUM :) And I worked as English teacher at the CECAR University in Sincelejo.

I was living happy days until the immigration authorities didn't let me stay any longer.. I had to go somewhere else, so I went to Buenos Aires. There I stayed for about 7 months working for a finance company until Berlin called for me again and I decide to move back to my favourite city just in time to enjoy the beautiful summer here!

...and then I moved to Finland to work in the game industry.

...and then I ended up in San Francisco, still in the game industry.

Me (from when I was working in Germany): (I am Tom) (I am the nerd)


I know it is a cliché, but who cares, it is so true:

"Treat people around you as you want people to treat you!"
