Thomas has been a coder since he was a little boy, always running pet projects. He attained a MSc degree in Biotechnology at the Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm. At university he was deeply involved with the theatre group - which gave him meaning because he was building something. He then worked at numerous companies as a coder. Now he runs Blockie.io and he is engaged in using the Internet of things to stop the poaching of wild life.
