Joel is a Student and Photographer currently studying music. He loves playing the drums and his guitar. Outside of music, Joel is also an explorer at heart. He tells us that he loves the ocean and adventuring out to obscure and unknown places. He has a bit of a spontaneous side and enjoys capturing his significant life moments through photography.
It's no surprise that Joel got into EDC through photography. After seeing many down-shots and flat-lays by photographers he follows, he began to do a few on his own. He also loves the sense of personalization and style that each EDC shot portrays about each individual.
Favorite EDC Tool:
When asked this question, Joel did not hesitate to tell us that it's his pipe. It was hand-carved by his roommate, personally designed for him. It's a one of a kind item that really adds a lot of character to his EDC.
