About Tom

I would like to build a jump'n'run/RP/puzzle game for handheld/iPad devices based on the Lost-Vikings game idea from the 90s.

I'm a very experienced software developer, passionate about coding and with a strong interest in game development. I'm a fast learner on any subject and are easily motivated by great new ideas. I'm very flexible and have experience with almost every major programming language out there.

I'm in need of a marketer, biz-developer, and product manager. Someone who can help me analyze the market and figure out what exactly a game must have to become successful in today's mobile world. I require a team that can keep my back free from having to deal with the management-, financing-, and sales aspects of a business.

Here are a couple of things I have done before:
- I have worked in a Computational Biology lab at Columbia as a PhD student (graduated in 2006) doing research on artificial intelligence.
- I have worked on Wall Street for a financial services comany as a senior software developer for 7 years.
- I founded my own software company in Germany in early 2012 and am currently trying to find partners (here on this and other startup platforms) to develop new product ideas.
