1979 At the age of 14, Tom gets a job at the local cinema (surprisingly called Cinema) in Wuppertal.

1984 Tom finishes school ('Abitur') with an average of 3.6 (out of 6 with 1 being the best mark) (Which, considering my personal average, leaves some hope for me, I guess.......).

Then he does his 'Zivildienst' (community service as a substitute for the compulsory military service) in Frankfurt and moves to Berlin afterwards, where he works for almost ten years at the cinema Moviemento in Berlin-Kreuzberg.
