Hi, I'm Thomas

Distinctive Freelance Web Developer

I have no special talent. I am only passionately curious Albert Einstein

I started graphic design when I was kid, I then went on to study computer science. After graduating, I founded a few businesses (most of which failed!). Over time, I learned a lot and developed a particular range of skills. I've been described as the glue between Business, Marketing, Design and Tech teams. Although, deep down, I remain a developer.

Now, I develop bespoke web and mobile applications for iOS & Android which are core of my clients businesses.
