Here we are in 2020! I spent much of the break baking (like the delicious vegan chocolate cake above)! Now we’re back to the grind and excited about the new year and all the possibilities it presents. We’re currently focusing all of our energy on our very fun project with the Brooklyn Museum. I spent 5 hours yesterday analyzing qualitative data! (<– genuine excitement, not sarcasm)
