Jewell discovered her gifts early, standing in front of the mirror as a young child with a hair brush in one hand (for the microphone) and a comb in the other hand (for a trophy) . . . thanking the academy for her many awards – yet to come. Proceeding through elementary and middle school, she joined a series of drama teams, community players, and was accepted into the Virginia Magnet High School for the Arts – studying the classics, modern literature, dance and theatre.
Only a beginning . . . more immersion of self and art was to follow!
Jewell left home at the early age of 18, New York bound with an inspired taste for theatre. Graduating from The American Academy of Dramatic Arts, Jewell studied more classic and modern literature, fine-tuned her skills as an actress and poured herself into theatre (acting, production and management) – with an ever-growing passion and zeal, sharpening her technical skills. As an actress, Jewell was blessed with roles in off-Broadway productions, television commercials and local film productions (for distribution on network and cable television).
Giving her life to Christ in 2006, Jewell's passions for the performing arts and God united in the creation of Kingdom Bound Productions Inc. where she focuses on the production management and development areas of the arts. Jewell continues to be an inspiration bringing creative and innovative Kingdom Bound performances through TV, film, musical and theatrical works of art . . . with guidance and covering from God. Jewell's overall goal is to build a performing arts "Home" for Kingdom Bound Productions, so we can expand on helping the communities in Maryland, DC, Virginia and Pennsylvania.
