Thomas is a technologist and entrepreneur with a special interest in personal health data that we may create by making conscious observations of our subjective experience and daily living. He has been building technology for this kind of active self-tracking since 2009. Thomas has been self-tracking extensively himself and has among other things fixed his pollen allergy. He is likely best known for a unique data set of all his sneezes during five years as featured in Quantified Self talks and by global, online media.
