" I arrived at a point in my life where I found a glass wall between me and where I wanted to go. With so much clutter and luggage a regular life comes with - what maneuvering room is there for change? This will be the story about how I managed by getting rid of a lot in life, to carve out enough maneuvering room to build an international company, albeit small, from a tent in the Swedish forests, powered by solar panels and with close to zero money."

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.

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx
