Who is the author of Shopify & You and what qualifies him to write this book?

My name is Thomas Holmes and I was born and raised in Dublin, Ireland. Today I live on the island of Paros in Greece. So what qualifies me to write this book? For a start, donkey’s years playing and working on the Internet. I created my first website in the summer of 1994. I was immediately hooked and I’ve been working with the web ever since. My first business was an Internet marketing consultancy called logic+intuition. In 2007 I created my first online store. Over a period of four years, this second business generated nearly 1.5 million euros in sales. With this book, I’m launching my third Internet-related venture. By the way, I love photography and they’re my photos that you'll see throughout the book.
