Life and Work with DJ5 Starr Kendrick Tilghman

Kendrick Tilghman is the perfect union of arts and science. He brings forward melodies backed by science and mathematics. He has a  Bachelor of Science Degree in Computer and Electrical Engineering and a Master of Business Administration. Currently, he is pursuing his Doctorate in Engineering Research Education from Morgan State University. Apart from that, he is a professional DJ and a successful entrepreneur. 

Kendrick believes his entrepreneurial spirit came from both his mother’s and father’s sides as his maternal grandmother washed floors for $5 a week and his paternal grandfather owned a popular membership club with the name Sphinx club. Kendrick grew up in Baltimore and recalls a peaceful and harmonious childhood in a two-parent household. 

Alongside attaining quality public school education, Kendrick was a keen basketball player and into DJing. Creating music was therapeutic for him and Djing led him to achieve a tremendous appreciation, leading it to be his passion and life’s work. 

“The highlight of my DJ Career is when I performed with the Soulful Symphony. If you can imagine me, in my tuxedo and bowtie scratching sounds to complement 77 other instruments. There is no better feeling. This experience allowed me to identify my passion. Connecting my passion for STEM is what created my life’s work.”

Kendrick started his company 5Starr Enterprise when he found out that the USA was 27th in the world in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. That shocking news got him thinking and he came up with the amazing idea of using his professional skills as a DJ to hold the attention of young scholars and provide them with an enriching STEM experience. The aim is to teach the young people in his community the importance of S.T.R.E.A.M. (Science, Technology, Reading, Engineering, Arts and Math).

 “My hypothesis is that, if we increase your creative thinking ( mixing DJin and STEM), it would increase your academic performance, attendance rates, and even graduation rates.”

Through his company, he leads various school programs, summer workshops, edutainment programs, STEM exhibits, and fairs. Through his tremendous efforts in propagating STREAM and DJing, he has been rightfully accredited to put the WOW in STEM.  Kendrick and his wife Carole founded the B.E. M.O.R.E. S.T.E.M. (Bringing Everyone More Opportunities and Relevant Experiences in S.T.E.M.)  Foundation Inc. which aims to engage, educate and excite communities about STEM education. 

Balancing work and life is crucial to a peaceful mind and Kendrick is proud to manage it beautifully.

“Family time is very important and I am excited that we have scaled enough that I can work on the business and not in the business every day. I am blessed that I can actually unplug and have family time because our team is getting stronger by the hour.”
