After being attacked by a billy goat at a young age, Jaz decided that leaving her Detroit, MI home was for the best. She moved to Philadelphia, PA, where she received her BFA in Animation from The University of The Arts. She currently works as a sequential artist and arts instructor, whose inspiration falls between “what happened” and “what could have happened.” She has yet to be attacked by another goat.

Current ongoing project: "We"
"We" is a documentary comic, started in early 2016, with the goal of bridging the gap between Black Americans who were brought to the United States by force, and those who chose to migrate here. Through interviews with the latter group, I hope to provide further understanding of the particular struggles they face within both the Black community and the American community at large.
