Tommy Shane

Senior Tab reporter

Tommy loves obscure movies, youtube videos with sub-1000 views, and taking photos of new age fun with a vintage feel. If he’s not riding his bike with no hands, he’s on the pavement having just crashed after trying to ride his bike with no hands. Interests include learning unreasonably long words, knowing the names of people he hasn’t met, and taking photos of strangers.
