Mr. Martin, a storyteller, has also used stories to inspire classrooms and youth groups in both New York and California. While living in Rochester New York he founded the BEHOLD Theater group (he hopes to kick start this again) which introduced to youth to various disciplines within the arts, ranging from Poetry to Fencing. Recently retired from the Los Angeles Unified School District he plans on taking poetry, drumming and storytelling on the road to reach a broader audience. He is currently writing a film script with hopes of releasing it sometime in 2018. His most recent book “Jus Sayin’” released in June 2017 is a myriad of thoughts he has shared over social media over the past few years.
Here are a few excerpts from Jeffery’s book Jus Sayin’

I exercise for health. I read for knowledge. I meditate for peace of mind. I travel to expand. I cut down the external noise to hear my internal voice. I look up because everything growing reaches for the sun.
I’m no different.

The lessons remain but sometimes the people don’t. On many levels we are alone. But that’s cool, there is more than enough universe to fill the voids.

Everything I am, I’ve become through self-reflection. Depending on others has never been an option. If I am great it is through my work, if I am small it is through my lack of work. I am neither king nor pauper, I just am.

Life is interesting. I used to look at rude, sour people with contempt, almost hatred. Now a part of me feels sorry for them when I think, “damn he/she gotta wake up to himself every day.”
Funny how as we change, our interpretations change. Love
