After his apprenticeship as banker, Thomas studied cultural science and communication- and media science at the University of Leipzig. After his work in the production management of a filmproduction company and as studio manager for the MDR (Mitteldeutscher Rundfunk) he was led in newer fields. Now he works as a producer for the expanding focus GmbH in Leipzig/Germany – using his banker-experiences for funding new projects and his organizational skills for trouble-free production processes.
Still new in the 360∞/VR industry, he’s looking forward to all further challenges and adventures – both in real life and in virtual reality.
