About This Website

Hi, I’m Tom 🚀

This site’s domain name is short for teitantom, an alias I’ve been using for video games, Steam, PSN etc. for as long as I can remember.

I grew up with the internet, doing my first websites more than 15 years ago when frames and marquee tags were still state of the art and my code got hacked into Notepad or Proton predominantly. I was lucky enough to be taught C, some JavaScript and Pascal in school for some years too - I’m sure I didn’t appreciate that as much back then as I do now, but it certainly provided a solid foundation.

My professional career in IT started in 2011 and I worked for telecom and IT service providers, software development companies and freelance clients since then. As of 2021, I’m working for a larger digital agency. A selection of freelance and open source projects can be found in the /work section of this website, noteworthy learnings are documented in the /notes section.

When I’m not in front of a screen coding, learning or playing videogames, I enjoy spending time with my family and being outside (cycling, gardening or walking for example). I also like playing boardgames with friends and spending time on DIY projects. Oh, and I really enjoy cooking too.
