Conference & Program Director
Tobias is the Conference & Program Director at Respawn and Quo Vadis and thus responsible for the program, speaker scouting & international cooperations at our international events.

Tobias is part of the industry for about 10 years having started in science and education, though having a way longer history in the games space since he grew up in the demoscene in the 90s and was thus always surrounded with all different kinds of creatives, from artists, to coders to production oriented mindsets on a "normal" day to day basis. With work experience for more than 10 years in IT, 7 years of lecturing at universities, 25 years in the demoscene,  but also holding a master in media studies, political science and history, having done games&art festivals, stage works and published articles on games and the demoscene he is a dedicated traveller between the worlds of gaming, culture and technology.  Being still passionate about games and game production after about 30 years he is traveling around the world building bridges between communities, scouting speakers and inviting creatives from all over the place to exchange and gather at our events.
