Dunson is from Dillon, South Carolina, but these days he’s a proud Atlanta resident. “There’s a lot of life here,” he shares. “We party, we sing, we cheer and we spread love. I enjoy watching the progression of people within an area that has historically and traditionally been at the forefront of human equality.”
“I would describe my upbringing as well-rounded,” says Dunson. “Due to my family dynamic I was exposed to several different realities as a young child. The majority of my childhood was spent under the supervision of my grandparents. They showered me with love, and spoiled me rotten. Being that my grandparents were churchgoing folks, conversations about God occurred regularly. Both of them sang in the choir so music was an integral part of our daily lives.”
We were immediately entranced by Dunson's steamy stare. “To impress a woman, I like to be myself and let my spirit shine through,” says Dunson. “Transparency is most attractive and I think it fits me quite well.”
“I don’t think there’s such a thing as the perfect catch,” Dunson admits. “Perhaps I will meet someone who is aligned with me and together we can continue along our path of exploring the human world. Maybe we can be supernovas and create an intergalactic explosion that reshapes the world for the better!”
“A focused yet fun woman excites me,” says Dunson. “I love to see people reach their goals, so, if a woman has vision, I believe that it’s my duty to help her fulfill her purpose; that way the relationship is mutually meaningful. We can then complement each other and fit together like beautiful lyrics to a sweet melody.”

“I can chef up a few meals but I definitely didn’t graduate from culinary school,” jokes Dunson. “I prefer smoking up the grill with some freshly seasoned fish, marinated chicken breast, kabobs, vegetables and anything else guests prefer. I’m willing to learn a thing or two in the kitchen though. Teachers are welcome.”
“I don’t have any rugrats as of yet but I imagine that I will one day be an awesome father figure,” says Dunson. “I look forward to planting, growing and nurturing my seeds.”
“I value kinship as opposed to friendship,” says Dunson. “True friends are hard to find these days so I seek to link with people at their core. That’s most important to me.”
“The majority of my homies are in the art, entertainment and film world, so we go out and live life to the fullest,” says Dunson. “We love to live life. Every now and again I might escape for a solo night of reading, writing, relaxing, etc., but a nice date is always welcomed!”
“The bravest thing that I have ever done is surviving to see 26 years of life as a young black male in America,” says Dunson. ”That is a wonderful feat in and of itself and I’m so very proud of that. Salute to all my young black Kings!”
“Believe it or not I haven’t traveled the world as much as I would like to,” Dunson admits. “But I would have to say out of all the places I’ve been, the Caribbean Islands resonate the most with my spirit. I often wonder about my African roots and how they have stretched throughout the world over the course of the African Diaspora. If my instinctual spirit serves me correct, I would dare to say that I have danced with the natives at Congo Square in New Orleans and made love to an African Queen on the shores of the Ivory Coast!”
“I absolutely love what I do,” says Dunson. “I get to breathe, eat, live and create art. That is all I’ve ever wanted to do. A world without art would be…I don’t even want to imagine a world without art. Next question!” We hear ya’ Devan.
“I’ve been creating and expressing since childhood, but my professional career started back in college at Hampton University,” Dunson shares. “I started doing fashion shows, school sponsored events and helping my roommate/best friend organize photo shoots with models at my school. We just started creating concepts and shooting them, since that point I haven’t looked back.”
“When I feel like giving up I think about the folks that I knew who are no longer alive and able to pursue their dreams at all,” says Dunson. “I use that extreme example because it reminds me that life is short and every moment should be used to live. And when I create art I feel alive, so that’s reason enough to keep going.”
Dunson doesn't mess around when it comes to his workout routine. He says when he's really on his A-game he trains 4-5 times a week.
This cutie has heart, ladies. About eight months ago, Dunson founded a community service- based organization called The FreeDEM Campaign. “Every week we provide food and water for 300-600 individuals in need and work to connect them to other entities which have the resources they need in order to better their situation,” he shares.
