*Is there a story behind your name? The story behind "ATOM" is this... way back since I was a little kid, I used to draw pictures of techy things like jets and cars, etc. I figured my projects should have a name of some kind. While thinking of names, I thought my middle name, Adam, might work. It didn't look techy though. But then I realized when I said "Adam" it kinda sounded like "atom"... and there you have it.
