Thomas Ott, Maker

Hi! My name is Thomas Ott but you can call me Tom. Dogs love me. I’ve been on Medium since 2015 but actively writing on this mid-2021 after I had an existential crisis. I’m a very right and left brain person, and those two sides seem to duel it out on a regular basis. You never know what you’re going to get sometimes.

I write on many topics ranging from sex, relationships, men’s issues, parenting, investing, philosophy, photography (Top Writer), machine learning, data science, and startups.

I mostly cross-post my articles from my two blogs, Neural Market Trends (left brain) and Thomas Ott dot IO (right brain).

Who is Tom?

I’m a father to two awesome kids, a partner of 17 years to a wonderful woman, live in the woods, and have a wonderful career. I work in the startup world as a solutions engineer/sales engineer/master of duct tape. I code, make presentations, and travel quite a bit (pre-COVID).

Half of me is an introvert that loves good books, a glass of wine, and a roaring fire, and the other half is an extrovert that thrives on getting up in front of people and translating complex subjects into easy-to-understand ones.

Why write?

That’s a good question. I’ve been writing since I was a teenager, sometimes poetry, sometimes short stories, and sometimes technical reports. Writing is what got me into the Startup world and now that I’m 50+ years of age I just feel an existential dread to accelerate sharing what’s in my head with you all. I feel like I’m excising the poison from my body by doing this as much as possible.

I write mostly in the mornings, I get up between 5 AM and 6 AM, make a strong coffee, and warm up the laptop. My goal is to spend the next half of my life writing as much as I can.

Thank you so much for being along for this ride, I hope to make it a fun one.
