Story
Tagline
Sometimes I believe in as many as six impossible things before breakfast.
Introduction
Science. Communication. Visual art. Psychology. I want to revolutionize education. My main research interests are creativity, intelligence, autism, exceptional ability, x-altruism and sociopathy, and what motivates people to change their behavior.

Passionate about creative collaborative projects that integrate science, art, communication, and tech. 

Freelance science writer, author, and rabble-rouser. You can read some of my work on psychology and neuroscience on Scientific American here, here, here, and here. You can find re-posts of a lot of my blog writing on IEET.

I am a freelance strategist and scientific consultant, and public speaker. I investigate the science behind human behavior and motivation, using this information to create strategies that incite change in others, on both an individual and corporate level.

I'm also having fun on the bleeding edge of Artificial Intelligence research at the intersection of psychology and technology, in the emerging field of Robopsychology, or AI Psychology. I investigate creativity, intelligence, and learning, in both humans and machines. Someday I hope we can replicate human creative cognition in AI. 

I do all my own stunts. Without a net.

Open Science. Knowledge is power. 

Some of my art can be viewed here.

I'm a little obsessed with brains, glittery things, and Triceratops. Not necessarily in that order. 

Also, I'm a huge nerd.

Did I mention science?

+Ryan Crowe wrote a really nice piece about me for the 'Unofficial' Google+ Recommended Users Spotlight. It makes me sound pretty rad. He's pretty rad, too. :)



Bragging rights
In college, I was the secretary of my honor society, a cheerleader, and a Bacardi girl.

Right, +Andrea Kuszewski, have a look at the diagram on the page you linked. The scale of the objects on there is off, but if you look at where Spica is on there, it's a couple of moon diameters off to the right and down. (As you say, your camera was tilted to the right, making Spica look even in the picture.) Mars was also to the right, but "above" the moon maybe 8 moon diameters away. It was also nicely visibly red last night, and you'll notice in your picture and mine that the one we're talking about doesn't appear red.

The only way you can truly surpass limits, is to not accept those limits exist in the first place. #dontsaveanythingfortheswimback #Gattaca

Limits are real. Find them, when it's important, but don't butt your head against them.

5 Neat Things About Tonight's Blood Moon (lunar eclipse)
The first total lunar eclipse of 2014 will occur overnight tonight, marking the start of an eclipse tetrad — four back-to-back total lunar eclipses — that will happen over the next 18 months.

I've lived in the Bay Area for two years now, and I finally bought my first hoodie. I guess this officially makes me a hipster.

We think of psychopaths as killers, alien, outside society. But, says the scientist who has spent his life studying them, you could have one for a colleague, a friend – or a spouse
