I am a Synaesthete living in Toronto - Ontario, 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.
Currently, I am conducting my own research, specifically on emotion and eidetic memory, and the experience of TRAUMA
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, as well as New Age Physices Research. I aim to share my point of view through writing and the story telling powers of multi-media art.
