RMS: How did you get your start as a model/actor?
DRM: I got my start as a model/actor by working in the music industry as an intern and the company I was interning for just start having me work in front of the camera on projects instead of being behind the scenes. So, that’s where I got a lot of my experience and start.
RMS: What do you enjoy most about your work?
DRM: What I enjoy most about my work is being creative. I love to create and come up with ideas! I also enjoy seeing the outcome and results of what I composed and brought to life.
RMS: How would you describe your personal style?
DRM: My personal style shall be described as GQ. I like to go with the Miami Vice look at times, depending on my mood. I just like to look sharp in my own way and try not to follow trends. “You don’t have to be a part of a wave, when you provide the water.” -N.O.R.E
RMS: What do you like to do on your free time? Any other hobbies or hidden talents?
DRM: I’m a big podcast guy! I enjoy listening to different podcasts. I think I listen to podcasts more than I watch television or listen to music. I enjoy listening to podcasts such as Brilliant Idiots, Dave Ramsey, Drink Champs, just to name a few. Hidden talents? I guess it’s not hidden anymore, but I actually enjoy listening to podcasts so much I joined one myself. I am a co-host on “Juicy Talk Radio” where I cover music, entertainment, and conduct interviews with special guest.
RMS: How would you describe yourself in 3 words?
– One of one.
RMS: What is the most important lesson you’ve learned from being in the entertainment industry?
DRM: The most important thing I learned about being in the entertainment industry is that you have to be consistent. You can’t put out work or a project and decide to put something out six months to a year later. You have to consistently put out material. You also have to network. The same effort you put sliding into a female DMs trying to holla, try sliding into someone DMs to collaborate with on a project.
RMS: What is something people would be surprised to learn about you?
DRM: I’m big on meditation. Lately, I have been meditating as part of my daily schedule. I have been experiencing tremendous benefits from it.
RMS: What keeps you motivated to reach your professional goals?
DRM: The thing that keeps me motivated to reach my professional goals is RESULTS. When I set a goal and then actually manifest it, that make me want to strive for MORE!
RMS: What is the best advice you ever received?
DRM: “Time, it waits for no one.” So, when I think of that advice It makes me want to put in the work and strive to accomplish all my goals. I’m competing with no one but time.
RMS: Do you have any upcoming projects?
DRM: Yes, I working on another network television show. Similar to the show I was a part of on LifeTime: Married at First Sight Second Chance. I’m definitely shooting for more photo shoots, commercial bookings and creating more content as I go. Everything will be on my website coming soon.
RMS: Is there anything else you would like to share?
DRM: Make sure you all tune into @JuicyTalkRadio live every Sunday 4pm to 5pm EST, to hear my amazing team (Shanny D, Steph and Que) and I give our point of views on current events, topics, and interviews. Also, follow me on Instagram & Twitter as well @DoeRayMe_ATL for all my endeavors.
