Welcome To The Atomik Factory!

The Backstory

I’m not gonna lie, I kind of love how Substack has made blogging cool again. What is this 2010? Some of you might have known me long enough to remember the fashion blog that I had in back in those days. It was called Vintage Clothes + Designer Drugs.

It was a fun little blog that gave me an excuse to focus on things I loved, writing and clothes. Then it got so popular that I started getting photo submissions from photographers, invites to NY Fashion Week, and eventually grew it into a fashion magazine in Atlanta called Vagrant.

Fast-Forward To Now

A decade-plus later and your boy's still at it—publishing, writing, and making noise. Writing for me isn't just an act; it's a sacred space. It's where I converse with my higher self, sift through complex emotions, and piece together fragments of wisdom. The work room in The Atomik Factory is fun though. I have house music playing over the speakers and the uniform is chic, because we’re not doing manual labor, we’re manufacturing ideas.

Think of this space as a dynamic assembly line for the mind, one that never runs out of unique blueprints. Raw ideas get molded through the machinery of my lived experiences and are fine-tuned by the artistry of storytelling. I’m pumping out top-notch insights, observations, and dashes of humor. While my magazines speak to a niche audience, this blog is where I let loose—no filters, no algorithms, just pure, quality-checked Atomik goodness.

An unfiltered dive into the intersections of queerness, pop culture, and social justice, all through the lens of a Brooklyn loudmouth... is what I want this to be. The truth is that it's mostly just my fucking journal.
