We had the good fortune of connecting with Dion Shepherd Jr and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Dion, why did you pursue a creative career?
I didn’t pursue a artistic or Creative career it pursued me. I just wanted to work as a pharmacist until I started working as a apprentice bounty hunter for Dog the Bounty Hunter Thanks to Jeff Kirkpatrick of Lodise Bailbonds. After filming with him for a few weeks something sparked in me. Then I started finding myself working on films in front of the camera and behind. I already had this creativity inside of me but I only scratched the surface and never jumped into it until working as a bounty hunter. Now I’m going face front into being an artist. I just finished writing my first book If you want Peace Prepare for War about my journey on A& E 60 Days In.

What should our readers know about your business?
Started a company called Justice League Consulting group and I work in partnership with Darren Brown Films to create High quality commercials / Videos for companies and Individuals.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
The first day I would take me friend to get some food and Motor city soul food because it’s the best southern food you gone be fine. Then go to the river walk downtown for a while. The next day I would take them to belle isle for a beach day and BBQ. The next day we would go to Ann Arbor for paddle boats and boats, then end at Top Golf. Then have to stop by my favorite restaurant Sinbads for some dinner. Then I would take my friend in a day of seeing Detroit monuments such as Hits Ville , The Heidelberg Project and eat some coney dogs with a wing ding dinner and a fruit punch no ice.
