With 15 years of experience in IT, an entrepreneurial mindset and strategic vision I have actively shaped the technological backbone of businesses in different industries such as cyber security, gaming and knowledge management.
Both from a personal and professional perspective, I am very interested in the effects of emerging technologies — such as AI or blockchain — on society. I am currently enrolled in the masters programme Science-Technology-Society at the University of Vienna to put this interest into an academic context.

Robin Sulmann, Managing Director Begame (November 2016)
1,5 years ago, we've hired Thomas for a short project of 3 months. Now 1,5 year later he's still one of the main pillars within our company who worked on, and finished the biggest project in our history as a lead developer.
Thomas is a real professional who can lead a big project to the next level. He's a highly experienced full stack developer who thinks commercially and in benefit for the company as well. Thomas is a real team player and will not avoid any good discussion how to move forward, because that's how he thinks, always going forward.
I will miss him as a person and as one of the best lead developers I have worked with.
In conclusion, I would highly recommend Thomas. He will be an extremely positive addition to your organization.
