jazz's filmmaking praxis plays with power and possibility. For the past 10 years she has been an activist and grassroots organizer working to shift power with organizations like Southerners on New Ground, Black Youth Project 100, and The Southern Movement Assembly. Her video and documentary work  are an extension of her organizing. jazz is also part of a global network of artists, activists, and organizers called Gallery of the Streets who work together to “transform  public and private spaces into temporary sites of resistance...into phantastical subversive imaginaries.” Since 2016, jazz collectively works to organize programming for the  PATOIS The New Orleans International Human Rights Film Festival and its year round events. In 2019, she was a part of the New Orleans Film Society's Emerging Voices cohort and she was nominated for a regional Emmy for her editing work on the documentary Preserving Justice.
