An assistant Youth Ministry Leader and Ministry Leadership Trainee since early 1996, Donevan was able to translate advanced development as a Certified Corporate Trainer (in areas of Service Excellence, Social Styles, and Diversity in the workplace) into practical solutions for grade school teens and college undergrads. At that time and to his surprise, this method of self discovery worked as well filling a void for many of his talented peers involved activley in Singles Ministry.

The L.I.F.E. Center Church, one of Central Florida’s largest church congregations, was also the church home to a number of talented Actors, Models, Singers, Musicians, TV and Film Production Technicians. Donevan was fortunate enough to received Countless hours of hands-on TV broadcast and Videography training while working with the ministry’s Program Director, Rebecca Darden-Mattingly, before she was appointed as

Film Commissioner for the state of Florida by then governor, Jeb Bush.

For the 1st time ever, a sense of having reached highest levels of purposeful passion while deploying a merged blend of natural gifts, years of corporate experience, with education and training, created opportunity to impact and influence like nothing else before or since. These compelling and most personal revelations, and consequent commitments, lead to the successful launch and licensing of “Spectrum Talent & Models” booking agency in 1997, while working for the 1st of 3 news, fashion and lifestyle and event entertainment publications.

In 2001, the originally named “Spectrum Talent & Models” was changed to CherVeli Talent & Models due to the commonly overused entity name “Spectrum” ” in the Virginia

Beach, Hampton Roads area. New contracts representing Stylist and Make-up Artist in the Metro-Atlanta region in 2005 marked the designation of CherVeli Management. In 2009

CherVeli Media became the umbrella DBA under the CherVeli Capital Group International, registered Private Trust.

CherVeli Media operates from its 4400 square-foot, Kernersville, NC Studio Office space with 16-foot high ceilings that have two rear-entry, double dock-doors, for separate production suites. The Central Carolina home based office suite has affiliated and satellite offices in Charlotte NC. Additionally, CV Media is equipped and offering Public Relations and TV Commercial productions that complement already established Booking Agency, Castings, and Management services for Models, Actors, & Extras, MakeUp Artists and Stylist Talents.
