TWENTY FIFTEEN

" The secret to getting ahead, is getting started." - Mark Twain

Here we are teetering on the precipice of a brand new year - 2015! I always find the time surrounding "The New Years" to be ripe with nostalgia and anticipation for what lies ahead. In retrospect, 2014 can be classified as a year of editing. Activities and intentions were refined and things that used to weigh me down were eliminated - making space for a brand new year that I have decided to dedicate to lightness. In honor of the past year and all that lies ahead, I would like to share my short list of accomplishments and intentions for the coming year. 

 

 2014 ACCOMPLISHMENTS

THE YEAR OF EDITING

  1. Celebrated my 5th year as an independent entrepreneur ! 
  2. Explored my heritage on an inaugural journey to Cuba with my family
  3. Founded and launched COLLECTIVE CREATURE and received a Vimeo Staff Pick for our premiere video artist statement
  4. Curated 5 exhibitions; including a Museum exhibition and Pop-ups +  showed my own art in 4 exhibitions

2015 INTENTIONS
