Tom wrote his first BASIC program at age 7, studied computer science from high school through university, and has been a professional software engineer for the past decade. Most recently, he developed highly performant web applications, shepherded overall technical direction, and managed a team of engineers at WatchDox.
When blockchain hit the scene he was immediately smitten. After tinkering with the technology for several years, he finally took the plunge and left his cushy programming job to co-found Portis - a platform for making decentralized applications accessible to mainstream users.
Tom is also a maker, frequent traveller and a hardcore movie and TV buff.
