I am a Synaesthete living in Toronto & Ottawa, Canada. 

 

My background is in medical anthropology, ethnomusicology, and a 2015 brain injury. 

 

Keeping to date with the global research community, and by applying the concepts of new age quantum physics  - I aim to contribute to the global conscience of Synesthesia and the world of Art & Science.

 

Currently, I am conducting my own research, specifically on emotion and eidetic memory, and the experience of TRAUMA. Findings for such are set to be presented in a film & script format.

 

The more I divulge into the sensorium, the more I want to open-source my findings and contribute to the community of Brain & Cognition Research, New Age Physics and Artificial Intelligence. The journey is shared through the story telling powers of multi-media art.
