Simon Tolksdorf

Hi, I’m Simon.
I grew up in the heart of Europe and in the south of Germany. Currently I am years old. Oh man, time flies so fast. It's time to make something useful out of it. So I give my best every day bringing creativity, technology and business together.

I am striving to utilize my knowledge of marketing / advertising, media production, and information technology to bridge the interface between computers, marketing, and the human experience. With an interdisciplinary education, I have broad knowledge in business and IT management, as well as in technical related fields.

So my heart beats for innovative modern and beautiful products.
