Hello! My name is Thomas Bensmann
and I'm a developer

I’m crazy about two things, technology and nature. When those two are combined, it’s magic!

I work as a CTO at Nettmaker, based in Oslo, Norway. We primarily do web stuff – mostly based on WordPress. Here I strive to help our clients achieve their goals online!

These days my time is spent on web development, CrossFit and rambling about Tesla (or any other of Elon’s crazy plans). If you want to reach out to me about any of the above, follow me on Instagram or Twitter.
