We had the good fortune of connecting with Demetrius Jackson and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Demetrius, why did you pursue a creative career?
I decided to pursue a creative career because I know the way my mind flows and I would not want to put a ceiling on that. I feel like since I have always been so quick to lose interest in doing “work” that doesn’t excite me, why settle for that when I don’t have to. I can truly say I love the process behind everything I do and that’s my purpose.
Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
My art is professional image enhancing. I enhance other peoples images by providing them all my services in one package. My services include photography, styling, barbering & social media management. I landed on this title due to having interests in all of my current services & making a way for them to work for me. There will always be a learning curve but if you can look at that in a positive way & not a negative, you are 10 steps ahead already. Your mindset is everything.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
I love living in the museum district. It makes me feel like a tourist in my own city. For breakfast, I’d have to give it to Christys Donuts on W Gray St! In addition to the top-tier customer service, they are right around the corner from my home. Lunch time has to be Pappadeaux, no debate. To end a great day with a drink and a delicious appetizer, I am going to have to go with Joey Uptown. The management(Drake/David) is taking care of the city over there, true fan.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
My mother for birthing & raising me.
