BIO

jazz-Givers Revival Miami 2022 -57.jpg

My filmmaking praxis plays with power and possibility. For the past 15 years I have been an activist and grassroots organizer. My video and documentary work  are an extension of my organizing. I work as a documentary camera assistant and operator in the field. I also work as a boom operator and sound mixer. I have had the pleasure to work on projects like House of Tulip  featured in Time Magazine , My Amazing Cheap Date currently streaming on Very Local TV, and several short films about underrepresented communities suffering from industrial pollutants in the US Gulf South. These short films have been produced and distributed by Frontline Media Network, Healthy Gulf and Southerly Magazine.

 

My personal work includes working with a global network of artists, activists, and organizers called Gallery of the Streets who “transform  public and private spaces into temporary sites of resistance...into phantastical subversive imaginaries.” Since 2016, I have collectively worked to organize programming for the  PATOIS The New Orleans International Human Rights Film Festival and its year round events. In 2019, I was a part of the New Orleans Film Society's Emerging Voices cohort and nominated for a regional Emmy for my editing work on the documentary Preserving Justice.
