Hailing from Durham, N.C., Dillard went on to earn degrees in English and mathematics from Morehouse College, finishing magna cum laude.

Dillard also enjoys acting and modeling. He has booked key gigs, including acting roles for The Wire, theatre roles for Deli of the Damned and Topdog/Underdog, and modeling and commercial assignments for Sean John and Sony Ericsson. He is always actively engaged in the auditioning process in the New York area and continues to pursue significant small- and big-screen roles.
