George A. Peters II is a multi-hyphenate creator: actor, DJ, host and voice actor, with a creative acumen that also extends to behind the camera as a director, producer, screenwriter and a critically acclaimed songwriter. Known in some creative circles by his sobriquet “2.0” [Two Point Oh], George also holds internationally recognized credentials as a Professional Black Guy, Only Child Olympian and cold Reese Cup Connoisseur.

The Los Angeles-based creative is originally from South New Jersey but also has southern roots, graduating from Morehouse College in Atlanta, where he studied English and Theatre. As an actor, he is known among his peers for his range, his commitment to his characters, his consummate professionalism in all settings and his infectious energy. George’s work balances his intrinsic ability to receive direction with his instincts for bringing characters to life “off the page” and presenting them as recognizable and relatable. With more than two decades of experience in entertainment, George was first bitten by the acting bug at age five and appeared in his first nationally televised ad campaign, for the NFL, at 15. After moving to Atlanta, George got his first big screen break as a featured Section Leader in the 2002 Blockbuster film Drumline. Since then, he has been seen in a variety of small screen roles on shows ranging from CBS’ FBI, M. Night Shyamalan’s Servant on Apple TV and Marvel’s Jessica Jones on Netflix.

Most recent was his lead role as a father in Google’s 2022 Holiday Campaign commercial. Beloved as a corporate spokesperson, George has an intuitive capacity as a natural-born entertainer. As an accomplished voiceover actor, George lends his voice to projects for dozens of satisfied clients, from the International Fund for Animal Welfare, to Drexel University and Temple University, to name just a few. His work as talent opened the door for George and his dedicated team of creative professionals to found Listen Two Me Productions, a full-service production company established in 2015. Listen Two Me aims to close the gap between the Idea and the Execution for underserved Black Americans. This approach was instrumental in Listen Two Me being selected into Hennessey’s inaugural “Never Stop, Never Settle” Society, an initiative for Black Entrepreneurs. Through these and other creative endeavors, George and Listen Two Me have further expanded their product and service offerings to include producing curated events for companies around the globe.

Within the last few years, you may have logged on to your company’s virtual summit or conference and been pleasantly surprised to see and hear DJ George 2.0 reaching through your computer screen and inspiring you to dance! L2M’s client roster includes Apple Music, Nike, Estée Lauder, Wondaland Records, The History Channel, Reddit, Nielsen, Hulu, CNN/HLN, Essence and BET. As a DJ and MC, George has shared the stage with like likes of Janelle Monáe, Anthony Hamilton, Jidenna, Prince and even President Barack Obama. George has even taken this inherent knack for drawing and compelling a crowd to co-found and produce HBCU SpringComing, an event that takes place in New York City, NY and Birmingham, AL in which thousands of HBCU grads are gathered for an annual celebration with a purpose: to raise scholarship dollars for incoming and current HBCU students.

In his decades on stage and on screen, George has constantly reinvented himself and always finds a new corner of the set or stage to explore. He appreciates the art of the process and respects the collaborative nature of production. With each successful opportunity opening the door for the next, George, to date, has produced live stage shows, directed branded content commercials, served as stage manager on international tours for Grammy Award-winning entertainers, created/produced content for the Grammys, Vimeo, BET Awards, Elle Magazine, Good Morning America, Today Show and more. As a writer, George’s innate gift landed him on the 2021 Oscars shortlist for Best Original Song for “Turntables,” alongside longtime collaborators Janelle Monae and Nathaniel Irvin III for the Amazon Studios voter suppression documentary, “All In: The Fight for Democracy” featuring Stacey Abrams. George is also the writer and star of a one man show, Any1Man, in which he embodies and chronicles the lives of seven Black Men inextricably linked by a single choice they've made.
Creative expression is the unifying theme of all of George’s professional endeavors, with each of his skillsets serving to sharpen the others. In rare moments when he isn’t performing or perfecting his craft, George’s spontaneity and creativity comes to life with family and friends in the form of impromptu games and spontaneous celebrations! He currently resides in Southern California with his wife Jovian Zayne and their two-year-old daughter, Jorgie.
