Tom is a multihyphenate. Not only is he the best at producing complex shows and events, he also understands the very technical aspects of those complex situations. Creatives, stage designers and show directors can design the most amazing things but without someone who understands how to bring that to life technically, dreams remain just good ideas. Tom understands that perfectly. As part of Backbone, he has been involved in developing three Sensation shows, next to overseeing the technical production of Mysteryland, Holland’s biggest electronic music festival. From Dutch music’s key award shows to Christmas television shows, Tom understands multiple aspects of event producing, making him a key player in production teams.
