About Thomas Puha
I’m a videogames industry personality or something like that. I’m the founder (and majority shareholder) of Finland’s leading videogames magazine Pelaaja, which began it’s journey in 2002. I’m written and hosted a documentary series on the demoscene, wrote and produced videogames television shows for three years at MoonTV and then for Nelonen. I’ve written countless articles and reviews as a freelancer for US and English based publications such as IGN, 1up, Electronic Gaming Monthly, Gamefan, PSM3, Official PlayStation Magazine, GamesTM and others. I’m also a board member of the Nordic Game developer conference and a speakear at various schools and industry events.
I love videogames, good movies and books, skateboarding culture, PES, electronic music recommended by Lasse Erkola, BrothomStates, dessert such as Tiramisu and Chocolate mousse cake. I also like Limp Bizkit, Guns’n Roses, House of Pain, Ice-T, James Cameron, Entourage, Stephen King, Harry Potter and movie scores.
I currently work at Umbra Software as the company’s “visibility optimizer”, which means I take care of Public Relations, marketing and all of our media whether it be social or getting us some media coverage. Umbra develops cutting 3D graphics rendering optimization solutions which means we are working with developers (hi Guerrilla & Bungie!) on games and engines that wont be announced for years. Which is very cool. Plus our engineers are like insanely fucking good at what they do!
…oh and I play a lot of Call of Duty.
