Tariq Dixon +
Tariq's earliest passions were art & design, but he somehow became an Investment Banker after college. His ill-fated and short-lived career in finance was followed by merchandising roles at Gilt and Armani. Tariq is originally from Baltimore, has never seen 'The Wire,' and is a graduate of Harvard College.
Nick Nemechek +
Nick is a lifelong thrifter and design junkie - who almost became a doctor. After a stint as a medical researcher at the NIH, Nick went on to work as a menswear merchant at J.Crew and Gilt. Originally from Seattle, he drives a red pick-up truck (yes, even in NYC), and is a third generation USC Trojan.
We’re Tariq and Nick - two friends, former co-workers and admitted homebodies (or “home enthusiasts,” you could say). We consider the home an expression of self - a reflection of our tastes, hobbies and travels, a place to form fond memories with friends, the best place to unwind after long day’s work.
We founded TRNK in 2013 for others like us - those who share a similar appreciation for the home, but don’t represent the common notion of domesticity. The site is a collection of our favorite products, stories, inspirations and ideas - sourced from around the globe, but all sharing a single, carefully-considered point of view.
