He made his professional theatrical debut at age 8 in A Christmas Carol at McCarter Theatre in Princeton, New Jersey. In 2009, his career was catapulted to a new level when he was cast as "Young Simba" in Disney's The Lion King on Broadway. After leaving the show in 2012, AJ's star continued to shine by modeling for Lord & Taylor and voicing many commercials, both television and radio. In 2018, Alphonso had his on screen debut in the movie "Roxanne Roxanne". Throughout his acting career, AJ has taught himself to play acoustic guitar, bass, keyboard and has remained an honor student.
