2016: Highlights

2016 has been quite the year, to say the least. It has been a year of abrupt change, shifts, and restructuring. There have been many tragedies in the world and I feel very lucky and blessed to have been surrounded by such strong, and inspiring individuals and safe and supportive communities. Here is a brief sampling of my 2016 -- thank you to my friends, family, collaborators, supporters, and everyone who helped me through this year. xx
