MUSIC, MY LIFE & MORE...
One morning in early October I had a quick dream. I was playing vinyl in one of the venues I attribute with my culturing as a dj. The owner was across the room. We smiled at each other and I woke up ... SMILING. It radiated so deeply that spirit told me to text him. Unbeknownst to me, he was “retired”. Upon closing the doors of The Shrine, the former Owner of 2 other legendary Chicago venues and I continued to communicate.
Joe Russo and I had lengthy conversations, in which we exchanged concerns about the current climate of Chicago’s nightlife. I have (personally) spent a few years lightly consulting and continuing research on angles of the hospitality industry and thankfully, our convo confirmed the many needs.
Last year carried a lot of ups and downs for me. My businesses came to a screeching halt. A car accident crippled my mobile hair styling business and slowed my dj servicing down as well. I painfully admit, I have occasionally battled with depressive moments, but these almost took me out. Gratefully, my faith in those on high and accessing my ills and desires, lead me to continue. I started receiving new work in areas I hadn’t dj’d in, in years. This summer I’ve had the pleasure of speaking on a few panels and mentoring a few aspiring jedis.
One special opportunity has presented itself, months after communicating with Joe, he decided to move to ATL. Rock Steady is his latest venture in West Midtown and I have been offered a longstanding position. I am now preparing to relocate. I am excited and nervous, all at the same time. In preparation, I have been releasing tons of records and other momentous items, to ready myself for my new chapter. Even with the recent wins, I am unable to fully fund my relocation and could use a bit of help.
I am reaching out to my loved ones, patrons and encouragers to support my effort of reestablishing my life and brand of all things Fathom Dj, in ATL. If you have stood with me during my entrepreneurial journey, I humbly ask for your support in the form of a monetary contribution, if you are able.
If you who have utilized my hair or dj services, come to any of the events or venues I've spun and or purchased my originals, I truly appreciate you and your ongoing support. I'm looking forward to sharing updates from my new city and all the ventures that shall come, with you!
With love, grace and #cozmickisses...

Fathom. You got this. I cannot wait to support you at this new venue. ATLANTA is going to love you. I’ll be sure to post and share with folks in the area and I’ll make a few intros to friends, even folks who have heard you spin—at our Life is Beautiful party there were folks from Ark and at my bday party. Bet. It’s on. Hugs friend and see you soon, in the south.
