Akeem Duncan, a native of the Bronx, is the founder and leader of Quiet Lunch Magazine. His OG status at the magazine is incontrovertible. He is a dedicated promoter of the arts, expert mingler, profuse sweater and compulsive writer. As the leader of Quiet Lunch, he is responsible for the daily operations of the magazine. While his ogre-like appearance may be intimidating to unfamiliar onlookers, Akeem is known among his friends and fellow staff for his bear-like hugs, his excessive humor, and his untamed passion for the work we do at Quiet Lunch.
