I'm Thomas
just another soul
that loves doing the right thing

But that doesn't really say anything, does it? There used to be a marketing text right here. And as we all know, time passes. Life goes on. Things change. New insights are gained. New goals are created. It is slowly becoming more and more clear where our world is heading to. For as long as I will be able to, I am going to try to help wherever possible. Is the current direction the right one? I don't know, but I do know that I want to follow my heart. I have an 8 year old son, and I would like to help create a better future for him.
