About Me


brains? how do they work?


i try to live my life well while helping others do the same. i'm very easy to get along with, very social, and I'm a very positive minded person. I try to be kind and empathetic with others as much as I can.


i think we should all work hard to make the world a better place. focusing on helping others can give your life a richness and meaning that is absent when serving only yourself.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I'm here to see the world, meet new people, and get exposed to new ways of life.


i'm interested in nearly everything, but my professional interests lie in the field of cognitive neuroscience.

I study cognitive enhancement- how we can teach ourselves to be smarter
