The Dark Room is all about facing our fears and inspiring authenticity by challenging the world to think, feel, act and speak for themselves. The stories we cling to and our responses to them make us who we are.
Josh T. Romero
Born in 1990, Josh T. Romero is the Lead Creep of Dark Room Horror and officially launched the company in December 2017. The macabre sank its teeth into him in 1993 after seeing Tim Burton’s Nightmare Before Christmas. He’s been in love with dark aesthetics since then and has continued to grow in his knowledge for the strange and unusual. As a cinephile, he’s spent countless hours devouring movies from every genre but finds himself constantly returning to his first love of horror.
In its inception, Dark Room Horror was created to showcase his writing, graphic design and videography skills but gradually evolved into a horror brand, challenging people to think, feel, act and speak for themselves.
When he’s not creating creepy shit, he’s either loving on his wife and kids or helping other businesses get their message out through freelance digital content creation.
Josh T. Romero lives in New Mexico with his stunningly beautiful/supportive wife and three wild children.
Traipsing into human life in 1995, bred and borne in Albuquerque, New Mexico, David Robert Burchell has always had his curiosities about the deep and dark and fantastical. Raised by a Father whose birthday fell on Halloween—and raised by his own steps into childhood trauma, obscurity, and fear—he has secured himself a special seat in the Twilight Zone.
David is an author, writer, poet, artist, musician, avid reader, lover of all arts, and creator. He is currently working on his first, full-fledged novel, Mister Sunder, as well as his first collection of short stories that encompass all of the varied and intricate facets of this nifty, little thing we call horror. He has an intense appreciation of the craft, and is greatly inspired at bringing out, and highlighting, the truths within the lies—the non-fiction that exists inside the fiction.
In his meantime, he works at a cafe in the East Mountains of New Mexico, working, and living, on and with the land and; in his free time, he enjoys going on hikes and runs with his pup, Momo, going to shows, spending time and creating with friends, laughing and laughing and laughing, and continually tacking on to his list of stereotypical details.
