My old mate Tom came up to Auckland last week for ASAP and we got to hang out and catch up, which was heaps of fun. I think we originally met through mates I had studying down in Welly. He lives in Mt. Maunganui and works at an awesome store down there called Thanks. I got to hear all about his awesome trip around the US which included going to NY and Coachella as well as some of the Shark Week stuff he has in the works at the moment which is pretty exciting. Basically Tom is a very interesting and hilarious guy doing awesome things.

So I asked him a bunch of questions...

My name is Tom Wright and I manage the store Thanks. I also have a brand called Shark Week which will be out this summer.
