Executive Board Member
JeVaughn Martin is a lover of all things media! He prides himself on what he has worked so hard for, and has been blessed to accomplish being President of iDream Media and JVM Productions, and serving as the Vice President of Anexus Media Enterprises, Inc. Since its inception in 2011, he has been a part of Speak That! Movement and currently serves as an Executive Board Member.
Born and raised on the south side of Chicago in the Roseland neighborhood, JeVaughn graduated from Thornridge High School, where he gained a wealth of knowledge while in the Communications Department. JeVaughn attributes much of his development in media to the great Lee Talley, who allowed him to gain experience through the creation, production, and direction of the TV series "On The Ridge". That, coupled with the demands of being raised in a family of faith, required him to attend church six days a week, which proved to be beneficial. Attending church almost daily caused JeVaughn’s faith to be strengthened; therefore, he gained acumen through observation and participation in church activities resulting in his passion for faith-based entertainment and community engagement endeavors.
Upon graduating from high school, JeVaughn went on to earn his B.A. Degree in University Studies (with an emphasis in Mass Communications & Political Studies) from Illinois State University. Prior to moving to Dallas, TX, JeVaughn made Central Illinois his home for 10 years; and as a result, he was able to further pursue his passion for media arts. JeVaughn has created, produced, and hosted numerous noteworthy events including Sunday Morning Praise Radio Host (WXRJ), eXpressions of Praise Open Mic, eXp TV, International Independent Artist Showcase Podcast and Tour, Relationship Hotspot Podcast, JeVaughn Show (Facebook Live Series and Podcast). He also uses his gifts, voice, and platforms to remain a strong faith-based community, mental health, and social justice advocate.
