The Raptors Then and Now

We spoke to some of our old ambassadors to see what they're up to now and asked how being a Raptor has helped them on their journey...

Tom Story.

Soundcloud Collective – Raptor

 What University?

Birmingham

What client did you work with?

SoundCloud

What role did you do as a Raptor?

I was a brand ambassador for Soundcloud as part of their nationwide student campaign to promote the SoundCloud Go subscription. As part of the campaign we had to record a mix of our own and share it with friends. The ambassador(s) with the most likes at the end of the campaign won a trip to Ibiza.

What did being a Raptor teach you?

Being a Raptor gave me a snapshot into a different side of events that I’d not been exposed to before.

What are you up to these days?

I’m working at Raptor HQ in Shoreditch and have been here for just over a year. Alongside working here I’m still running events in Birmingham and have done a few smaller events in a few different locations in London and further afield.

I model for an agency called Oxygen Models based in Chelsea, I did a photo shoot over the weekend for Lyle and Scott. They are going to use the photos in store and on their webs site which is great for my portfolio.

What did being a Raptor teach you?

I learnt a lot about Soundcloud’s business model and got to meet some of the guys from their head office which was pretty cool.

What are you up to these days?

I’ve just finished a UK tour supporting Mall Grab. We went across Ireland which was cool. I also released a record on Steel City Dance discs, which pretty much sold out everywhere so when I’m not at my day job I’m just working on more new music and DJing most weekends.
