Ariel Tojo, 43, is a jack-of-all-trades. Born in Cuba and raised in Miami, Tojo dabbles in many things, including real estate, training, and most notably, acting. His favorite gig? Impersonating Mr. 305 himself, also known as Pitbull.
"I really love acting in general, but especially impersonating Pitbull," Tojo said in a phone interview. He was recently hired to impersonate Pitbull at a That's So Miami event in Times Square June 18, put on by the Greater Miami Convention & Visitors Bureau.
Tojo was extremely enthusiastic about his role -- one which he has assumed many times with great success. But last week marked his first time playing Pitbull outside Miami.
"I have a lot in common with Pitbull, and we have similar mannerisms and swag," Tojo said. His goal is to one day perform as Pitbull in Las Vegas. "People always come up to me and think that I'm him."More »
