About / pleasure to meet you

I’m a New York city native, creative maverick, style alchemist and lover of all things pop culture. I’m an entrepreneur & writer by day and a perpetual, nocturnal ruminator. I’m a strong believer in mixing mischief & mayhem with a dash of rebellion and a pinch of lawfulness to keep the scales balanced.

As a renowned wordsmith, I constantly make up words, participate in impromptu dance-offs, talk out loud when no one’s around and hum while I eat.

If you feed me after midnight, I multiply and get into awesome adventures. By dawn, I’m back to normal. I own a pocket-watch, monocle and a top hat because Mr. Peanut and the Artful Dodger are two of my style inspirations.

My musical tastes are eclectic but I love basically anything with a sick beat, because that’s the universal cue for me to shake my ass.

Alice in Wonderland, Roald Dahl stories and 1970s horror movies have left an indelible mark on my twisted imagination, meaning that if a Tim Walker world exists, I would love to live there.

I believe in authenticating yourself, living for each moment and manifesting your own destiny.

I started StyleAlchemy as an outlet for my creative ideas and love of all things thrift & vintage.

If you’d like to get in touch feel free to email me: hello@matrabrathwaite.com.

P.S. I’ve always written. I’ve always been a writer. I can’t imagine not putting pen to paper and expressing myself.
