Active in the music publishing & sync business since 1997 (Virgin, Tricatel, Naïve) after a Bachelor of Arts with Honors in International Economics, Thomas founded Velvetica in 2011.
When he wants to get away from copyright for a little while, he sometimes acts as music supervisor for Film & TV, getting to collaborate with international pop artists such as Mogwai, Air, Timber Timbre, Sonic Youth…
Obviously, he mostly loves alternative music but he’s also a vinyl collector of space age pop, exotica and Música Popular Brasileira.
