Thomas Suarez

Thomas Suarez is an American computer programmer and virtual reality developer based in Los Angeles, California. He is the founder and Chief technology officer of Teleportal. [17] [22]


Suarez is currently on leave of absence from Georgia Institute of Technology to work on his company Teleportal full time. [23]


He taught himself to code at the young age of nine and started publishing apps on Apple Inc.'s app store that got him recognition in the developer community. He started a mobile app company called CarrotCorp [7], which sells mobile applications on the iOS platform. Thomas has given a TED talk about the importance of computer programming and helps others learn to code as well. [12]

Suarez established his own company, CarrotCorp in 2009.

CarrotCorp sold mobile applications for the iOS platform, two were free and two others sold for $0.99 each.

His most successful app is one he called “an anti-Justin Bieber game” called “Bustin Jieber”. Tom called it similar to Whac-A-Mole. The game allows users to “whack Justin Bieber” when he moves to a different random location on the screen, he moves every fifth of a second. [23]

He then founded Teleportal in 2015.

Teleportal (formerly WiTag) creates real-world augmented reality experiences and platforms. [23]


His TED Talk video on YouTube has over 11 million views.[20]
