... Artist, Author & Public Speaker Extraordinaire!

A Mission is Born. A Journey Begun.

Born in Sumter, SC in 1983, DJ was 3 years when he was diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder, along with psychomotor retardation.

This combination, along speech delays and motor skills issues created a variety of issues.

DJ didn't grow, develop and mature like other kids. As the years went by, DJ was taunted, teased, made fun of and bullied, both in and out of school.

A Mission was born. The Journey had begun.

Meet the Mupperezmo, Shy Guy, and all The Imagifriends!

A new Imagifriend is introduced every Monday!

The Mupperezmo

"Look and see things from a different point of view!"

“The Mupperezmo, also known as "The Mupp", is The Leader and Mascot and Mickey Mouse of The Imagifriends of Imagiville.

He Was Created to Help The World to know and to Understand that Everyone with Autism Thinks, Feels and Sees Things From a Very Different Point of View!

That is Why He Turns His Head Upside Down, So that He can see Things from a Different Point of View! 

But The Mupperezmo is sure for Everyone. We all See and Feel and Look at Things from a Very Different Point of View, And It is Always Very Important to be Kind." :)

Love, DJ

The Shy Guy

"It's OK to be Shy!"

"Shy Guy is a very special friend to everyone in Imagiville! He's a very kind and friendly friend who is also very shy. In fact, he is so shy that he always wears his special green and blue lamp shade over his head, and often tries to keep hidden from time to time, but every once in a while he likes to come out and see how everyone is doing!

He teaches that it is okay to be shy and that you never need to be ashamed if you feel shy sometimes.

Shy Guy wants to be a friend to you and he wants to remind you that you are very important and very valuable and being shy is … OK!”
