King Armah: What inspired you to become an actor?
DJ: Honestly, I think acting chose me. I can remember as far back as being in middle school, playing outside with my younger brother and neighborhood friends. I also remember those evenings after school, lying down in the center of the living room floor with my hands under my chin, watching black and white films on the Turner Classic Movies channel. I gravitated toward the latter hobby. I got completely lost in that world. There was also another instance where I was in middle school and I ended up being the master of ceremonies, part of a step routine, and a dance number, all in one program. It really gave me a rush.
King Armah: When did you officially get your big break into acting?
DJ: Gosh, that’s a little difficult to answer because I’ve had a few opportunities that have gotten me to where I am now. In terms of commercial success, it would have to be the tv pilot I’m working on right now, as well as The Seeds In The Concrete project. They both have great potential for name recognition and I’m hoping they gain enough momentum to improve my status in the industry. In terms of just playing an awesome character role, it would have to be playing the part of Rudolph Peterson from the play, Judgement at Nuremberg, for my thesis project in graduate school. The character work I came up with was amazing.
King Armah: How important was getting your post-secondary education, and has it helped you further your career?
DJ: I never really thought about it to be honest. It was just a natural progression after high school for me. I think education will always lead you in the right direction.
King Armah: Where do you see yourself in the next 5 years?
DJ: I see myself working hard and being me; living my best life.
King Armah: What other entrepreneurial endeavors do you currently have going on?
DJ: I’m currently working on producing my own short films.
6. What advice do you have for those pursuing a career in the creative arts industry?
DJ: Get some tough skin.
King Armah: When is you next project coming out?
DJ: The tv pilot is set to be at the next TribeCa film festival.
King Armah: Who inspires you creatively and why?
DJ: God and my mother. We all know God. But my mother has always been the living embodiment of love.
King Armah: What are you doing to give back to the community?
DJ: I’m using my art to depict everyday people I’ve come to know; people who would otherwise get overlooked or have caricatures made of them.
King Armah: Any last words for the readers, and how can people reach out to you for bookings or to get in touch with you?
