Hi, I am

Thomas Kioko

I’m an Android Engineer.

about me

Who’s This Guy?

My name is Thomas Kioko. I tend to think of myself as a simple guy who loves what he does. I specialize in Mobile Development, and I mostly focus on simplicity, ergonomics, responsive design. I’m a dedicated coder, occasional gamer, and friendly teammate. I’m always trying to find the best blend of innovation, skills and hard work for the purpose of delivering awesome user experience in products I create.

Apart from my computer life, I am a huge fan of traveling. I also like good movies. I can’t live without music, which accompanies me almost all day (hmm… unless I’m on the road). I love going to concerts. There is no better way to relax than spending time with my friends. ooh, I play the piano.
