For our 250th feature, we have none other than Nic who just joined the Urban EDC Supply family! As part of our Customer Experience team, he'll be on the ground to make your experience with UES as smooth as the action on a Shirogorov. Read on to find out all about Nic's carefully curated carry and find out what he has his eye on next.
This is what lives in my pockets (or on my desk) most of the time nowadays.
I’m based in NYC! Born in West Virginia. Grew up in Brooklyn. I’m a photographer (“fine art”, whatever that means...) too. Went to college a little bit north of the city, and next year I’ll be an MFA in Photography candidate which I’m incredibly excited about.
I just joined the Urban EDC Supply team! Going to be running and gunning the customer service experience from here on out. I’ve only been on board for a couple of weeks and it’s already been a fantastic experience. I love working with a small team, and I’m excited to get to know the EDC community even better.
I’ve always been interested in gear and gadgets, since I was a kid. I started learning about the EDC community specifically sometime during college, maybe around my junior year. It was exciting to find out that there were other people into the same geeky stuff that I was.
Aside from photography and art, I’m a pretty avid reader and gamer - just finished up Ghost of Tsushima. A good day for me is getting a walk in and shooting a couple rolls of film. Also a big music geek (current album rotation: Blues Funeral by Mark Lanegan, Ohms by Deftones, Free by Iggy Pop).
Favorite EDC Tool:
I’d have to say it’s the Alpha Pen. One of the first really nice pens I got for myself, and it feels sentimental and special to have a nice piece like that coincide with getting back into the habit of writing regularly.
What's next on my Gear Radar:
I can already feel myself getting sucked into the custom flashlight abyss... got my eye on a Sinner Custom... maybe an Okluma later in the year. I’m secretly saving my pennies for a Sinn 356 too.
