Born and raised in Nevada—a place that should also be called Hell—Allister grew up on a steady diet; Sex and the City, Devil Wears Prada, Jen Lancaster, & Queer as Folk. His first love was photography, however became bedeviled with writing.
Dipping into editorial first, Aries was built. This was a magazine for the everyday gay man. Ranging from how to excel at your job to sharpen your intimate side. Running the magazine for two years, it was time to take his writing a step further.
