The Hosts

A first-generation Haitian American, Don Elivert is a native New Yorker, born and raised in Queens. He earned a full academic scholarship to the prestigious Regis High School in NY, before collecting a BS in Psychology from Amherst College with a focus on the derivation of stereotypes and prejudice. He was also a member of an award-winning a cappella/sketch comedy group, lending his exceptional voice to a variety of projects and performances. In his professional career, Don worked for 15+ years with TransPerfect Translations, the world’s largest localization and multilingual business services provider. He has been a consultant on over a thousand brand messaging projects for the world’s top marketing firms, media conglomerates, broadcast production agencies, and Fortune 500 brands. But Don has returned to his art, and now splits his time between working as a Voice-Actor and a Business Consultant. He has narrated dozens of corporate videos, internet promos, eLearning/training modules, and audiobooks.
Justin (Jehriko) Turner, lovingly known as JT, is a New York native with familial roots in the deep American South. His CV is stuffed with academic and artistic accolades from Phillips Andover Academy and Amherst College; he also holds a Master of Fine Arts Degree and several domestic/international publications as both a writer and a photographer. Professionally, he has produced several Fashion events and stage plays while also working as a Non-Profit Executive and Civil Rights Activist with a focus on voter suppression. For the past 12+ years, he has served as a Professor in the City University of New York school system, working part-time as a freelance Fashion Content Creator. Unapologetically pro-black and pro-small business, JT founded Metropolitan Couture Media Group (MCMG) to help fashion brands owned by designers of color to produce high-quality media at low to no cost. In 4 years, MCMG has produced close to 50 published editorials and events in multiple US cities, in addition to raising awareness and funds for several Black/Latinx-owned charities.
