My name is “DJ Jarak” Wysocki. I am a geek, a goth, an Aspie, I’m a bi-sexual transgender female, a photographer, a graphic designer, a digital artist, a talent promoter and a magazine editor. I have a passionate love of science fiction, fantasy, electronic music, alternative fashion (especially cyber and corporate goth), cooking and computer science. I’ve written many articles on the subject of cybernetics and artificial intelligence, a few of which have been published. I've also recently developed a love of acting. I’ve been in a few local movies, one of which has been opted for international distribution. It's called Recovery. Check it out. I also designed the poster for it.
I came out as bisexual a few years ago, but only just recently as transgender female. It's not the kind of thing you take lightly. I've never felt masculine at all. I've always been more into fashion and art than sports and other physical things. I also hate the way my body is made. It just doesn't feel right to me. My birth name is Daniel, but everyone calls me DJ now. The J is for my middle name. My cousins called me DJ all my life so it feels right to make it my new name. I still dress as a man, but that's only because I don't have any feminine clothes. That's going to change very soon. I even have a photographer and make-up artist friend ready to do a coming out photo shoot of me. They're so sweet. It just feels great that I can now be the real me. I don't have to worry about my voice being too high or being too emotional. I've always been that way. Somewhere along the line, nature made a mistake and I was born wrong. Mistakes happen, even with nature.
For work, I run 2 companies called Aperture Star Creations, in which I offer photography, photo editing, photo manipulation, and graphic design services to the public and I also have a PC based operating system repair service called Optimization Now. However, my big project is Strange Beauty Magazine, which features creative talents from models to hair stylists, articles on many topics from art to geek culture, and of course, we sell ads as well. After ad sales are what mainly supports any publication. Most of our profits are reinvested back into the magazine to cover our own advertising and such. We publish through MagCloud, which offers our magazine as both a PDF download and as a print in perfect binding. We (well, I) design all our own layouts in-house for a truly unique look, sometimes incorporating submitted images as part of each page's design. Check us out.
