My self-summary
Hi!

In no particular order:

I'm a neuroscientist who lives by the beach. Life is sweet.

By day I study empathy, mirroring and the distributed self.

At night, I make music and paint with a camera.

I think that wealth consists of maximizing the amount of time in which you can do whatever the hell you want.

I really, really, really like live music. I am usually at a show or playing a show or preparing a show. I hope the afterlife is a bar with live bands, a pool table and a lot of trees.

Last, I believe attraction predates friendship as well as love and lust, so don't be put off if my intentions aren't clear at first. I'm usually figuring them out as I go along. Assume the best and I'll try to do the same.
