-Began his musical career as a drummer. Made the conscious decision to focus on rhythm guitar exclusively
-The name Pollo Nego came about because Tom's real surname is "Raven." His friends didn't know how to say "raven" in Spanish so "Pollo Negro"- "Black Chicken" was the best they could come up with!
-Has a strong leadership role, thinking of plans and encouraging the band
-Was born in London. Supports Tottenham Football Club. 
-Loves listening to Pink Floyd, The Doors, Bob Marley and anything chilled and groovy
-Has tattoos on his feet that say "Walk to the Beat."
-Usually writes the band's set lists before performances (almost every Kallidad song starts with Pollo playing the intro!)
-Prefers the music to be tighter and better rehearsed (Jace prefers looser and more impro.) The balance between their preferences has become Kallidad's unique vibe.
-Lived with Senor Bang Bang in a flat overlooking Bondi Beach, where the band was born
-Works closely with Senor Bang Bang to get their rhythms to line up perfectly
-Is always kind, fun loving and hilarious company!
