To be fully present, authentic, and appreciate all of life
Currently I am living in a coop in Cambridge and working in a cognitive neuroscience lab, and planning my next step.
That is a big topic, and it changes. A few years ago I was very materialist (in the philosophic sense). Now I'm exploring other ideas and ways of knowing that I use to think were crazy.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I have surfed in Europe and the US and hosted some people. I love CS and think it's a powerful tool to bring people together and change the world. I'd also like to do some social psych research on trusting social networks, like CS. What makes them tick?
Have surfed many family and friend's couches in the states and europe and have had surfers over for dinner.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Connected deeply, loved, cried with complete strangers. Flow in dance and felt boundless love for humanity. The 'magic' hour (dusk dawn). Fallen in love. Slept under cardboard in strange cities (it's really quite useful). Wondered about what the hell this is all about and about the nature of reality.
