Meet The Director

Hailing from Los Angeles, California,   J’Zhanel is a talented actor and model.

After graduating from Columbia College Chicago with a degree in Arts, Entertainment & Media Management with a concentration in Music Business and a minor in Theater, she quickly began building a career working in artist management and development within the music industry, which afforded her the opportunity to travel and work with clients in both Los Angeles and Atlanta.

While working in the music industry, she then decided to make a commitment to take a leap of faith and pursue her dreams of becoming an actor.  She completed the Tasha Smith Workshop (TSAW) in January of 2010; a workshop that in her own words “changed my life!”  She was then presented with an opportunity of a lifetime to work on a major project that would take her to Atlanta and would change her life as well as take her career to another level.

She was signed to Legacy Talent Management, and has quickly built a name and extensive resume for herself with credits ranging from film, television, radio, Ad campaigns, print, and theater. Working with the following networks and production companies; BET Network (The Monique Show, Tiny & Toya Season 2, and Let’s Stay Together), CW Network (The Vampire Diaries),   LifeTime Television (Drop Dead Diva), QueenDome Entertainment (QDE) (S.H.E. SPITS), Dream Catcher Productions (Black Man-o-Logues I, II & Fading Flowers), ABC Family (Christmas Cupid), 20th Century Fox (Big Momma’s House 3), Tyler Perry Studios (Meet the Browns and For Colored Girls) and VH1’s (Single Ladies).

She continues to pursue her dreams while volunteering her time and talents and supporting organizations such as; the 14th Street Playhouse, Big Sisters & Brothers (Atlanta & Los Angeles), Atlanta Film Festival, Los Angeles Film Festival, Tasha Smith Acting Workshop (TSAW), Women in Film & Television of Atlanta (WIFTA) and Actors Monologues Forum (AMF).

In addition to her career as a professional actor and model, she currently serves as the Founder/CEO of QueenDome Entertainment (QDE) with subsidiaries such as Actors Monologues Forum, JZTV, S.H.E. SPITS-The Play: 5MC’S, 3 NIGHTS, 1 MIC, and Versification.

With a busy production schedule that currently keeps her working between Atlanta and Los Angeles, to the demanding responsibilities of this budding entrepreneur, she makes it look so effortless, while providing the sky in which others can soar.

J’Zhanel is a true example of hard work, perseverance and determination and she is not just talking about it, but in essence, she is living her DREAM!

In the production of S.H.E SPITS, she portrays the character of Queen Pink, performing, “Floetical Priorities” and “The One”.

I believe that acting is my ministry, my mission, what I was created to do, so I am just using my gifts and talents as a conduit to help others achieve their potential.” J’Zhanel
