Who are you? - Tom Kristopher

As we continue to give you a glimpse behind the brand, today we're going to introduce you to the man behind some of our most recent graphic tees, our little animated social media bits and the office K-Pop enthusiast.

Tom is from our native Stockport which is clearly in his favour, though he was born in the Philipines, which means he's not weighed down by a love for viaducts, pyramids or lower league football teams. 

Unlike some of the other people in the team, Tom is a morning person, so it probably makes sense that he's first up in this series of short interviews with the people behind Hikerdelic. Here he is as a toddler, looking a lot like a very cool girl.

Who are you?

Tom Kristopher Camay Galbo

What do you do?

I don’t know but I try my best (aka Graphic Designer).

Where are you from originally?

Philippines – Pinoy ako.

What does a normal day look like to you?

I wake up at 4am to fight the demons in the house before everyone wakes up (demons come out at 3am) and then go to the gym which is a 40-minute walk away. I then walk back home. I take a shower. I take a bus into town to go to a café to read before work. I then work. I then go home. I then am at home so I can sing to myself.

Where is your favourite place in the outdoors?

Honestly, as I used to just stay at home when I was younger, anywhere is great – but maybe like an open field with an area of trees. Basically, a nice picnic- able field would be ideal.

If you could have a superpower, what would it be?

Teleportation – but if everyone else says this one as it is clearly the only right answer, then being Musically Gifted.

Favourite Hikerdelic item?

I really like the ‘Khaki Conway Smock’ and wouldn’t mind having it on my desk when I come in the next day (Size XS). But in terms of what I wear most frequently, it would the Cactus Tee in White.

When did you first hear about Hikerdelic?

Honestly, when I started working here – but in my defence, before I get fired, I never really looked at brands before working here so its excusable. But at least I’m expecting an XS ‘Khaki Conway Smock’ soon.

Tell us a joke.

I don’t want to, Mark says enough.
