Tom Powell


Editorial Assistant

Tom likes to travel, which is perfect, really, considering his role at Escapism. When he's not testing out mattresses all over the UK, chilling in the onsens of Japan, or following his stomach across the south of France, you'll probably find him writing about his latest adventures at Escapism HQ, or suffering mild heart palpitations at Arsenal. It's okay though, he really likes Arsenal.
