About Me


Ars Electronica in Linz, Austria


I'm originally from Australia, but I've been living in San Francisco for the last 1.5 years. I work at a Cognitive Neuroscience lab here doing pattern classification over brain signals. I'm about to go to Austria for two weeks, to check out this awesome thing I've heard about - Ars Electronica.

I have minimal German, but love the language and would like to learn, and I'm keen to meet the people and have fun experiences there.


live and let live.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I haven't had much experience with Couchsurfing yet, as I just joined up, but I look forward to meeting some awesome people from different cultures and lifestyles both here in SF and abroad!


I'm really interested in the intersection of art and technology, making interactive art, talking about social interactions and the web 2.0 revolution. I like exploring, dancing, meeting new people and making friends. I'm interested in Neuroscience and DIY engineering.

I like good coffee, bike riding, sunshine, parks, conversation with interesting people, and trying new things.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I went to Burning Man last year and was part of a large scale fire art project which measured your heart beat, and triggered a large circle of flame effects in time with your heart.


Teach, Learn, Share

I can juggle and I like to teach people how.
