Amazing things Tom's made
I've run three companies and sold two. The first was a award winning blog in South Africa that quickly grew to be one of the leading blogs for local popular culture. I then opened a groove bar called Fiction that was also recognised as the leading night spot in Cape Town entertaining 5 Oscar winners and having the likes of Skrillex, Little Dragon and many other world renound artists stopping by to play. Both businesses taught me an immense amount about creating brands that people love and respect as well as dealing with customers on a large scale.
Recommendations

Sebastian Stoddart Co-Founder at BarNecessities

Tom is a rare individual. He not only knows what people need on a day to day basis, he's thinking about what they will need in the future. Best of all, he has the ability to create a killer product that delivers both. I cannot recommend him highly enough.

Ernst Hertzog recommended 8Bit where Tom is Co-Founder

Very excited to be invested in this epic team who are solving real problems with smart solutions. Massive potential to scale and also to exit... can't wait to see how the story will unfold.
