TomSka

TOMSKA
Thomas ‘TomSka’ Ridgewell is a perpetual man-child who makes stuff full-time for YouTube with an audience of over 4 million subscribers. When he’s not beating an animator with a stick to produce webtoons such as asdfmovie and Crash Zoom, he’s flailing around with guns and pretending to be an action star. Choosing to fight zombies and dinosaurs instead of learn anything at university, he speaks only the language of the Internet. May God have mercy on his soul.
