Who Is Dimitri Snowden?
According to his blog, Dimitri Snowden is “the son of an immigrant Vietnam father and humanitarian American mother.” His job title is “ontological architect and change agent.” What is that exactly? According to his website: “Dimitri Snowden subscribes to the philosophy that what people design, designs them back (design thinking). In other words: the digital journey he designs for his customers will be redesigned by his customers.”
And if that was too Zen for you, he’s also a mixed martial artist, races cars, and models Legos. His wife, Ashley Snowden, is a Tahitian dancer who enjoys ice skating, painting, and singing. She speaks three languages. Both their children speak two languages and are home schooled. The family is also well traveled and the children had been to five countries before they turned two years old!
Dimitri Snowden’s Instagram
Dimitri has a loyal following on Instagram and like many on the show, people often criticize and question his personal beliefs.
One follower wrote, “I just got finished watching last nights show & then starting looking at some of the accounts from your show, sister wives & a few others. Just have a question and I’m trying to start any trouble with you or Ashley. But, what do you have to say to the people that are saying it’s men like you that gives Polygamy a bad name by sleeping around without the wife knowing about it but justifying it as a lifestyle & seeing if you vibed? [sic]”
Dimitri replied, “does ‘monogamy’ get a bad name due to all the side chicks, home wreckers and man whores? <— of course not. it’s silly to demonize and entire relational construct. otherwise, i don’t have anything to say. people can and will think what they will. [sic]”
Dimitri Always Wanted a Big Family
In an interview with Essence magazine, the Snowdens talked about their experience on the show and taking on common misconceptions of polygamy, especially after adding a new sister wife into the mix.
“Everything in the Black community is taboo, and broadcasting our relationship on TV, I think it’s helped me to depend on her more or know that I can,” said Dimitri. “The feedback that we do get is obviously male-centered because it’s, ‘why would a man do this? It’s all about him.’ And the observation of how we may behave or work inside our relationship, of course, was then used to leverage unfavorable responses. I think the sum aggregate of everyone’s responses starts to hurt after awhile, and we decided to do this and this is what it comes with. But nothing can prepare you for that.”
“I realize that we actually probably do come from some pretty open-minded families in a way,” Ashley revealed. “Neither one of them is happy about it, but they both support us because they love us. That’s it. Initially, I didn’t even tell my mom at first because I mean, it was new for us. We knew that that’s what we wanted to do, but we didn’t know how to talk about it at the time because there wasn’t Seeking Sister Wife on TV yet. How do you tell your mom that you want to do this? We just did it.”
Seeking Sister Wife airs on Sundays at 10:00 p.m. EST on TLC.
