Welcome! I’m a Lecturer and Assistant Professor at Southern Cross University, Goldcoast, Australia. My research focuses on the psychology and cognitive-neuroscience of insight, meditation, and all things ineffable. My work is deeply theoretically driven and traverses multiple levels of analysis, from neurons to psychology. My mission is to know the mind in order to uncover simple and effective empirical paths towards peace.

I live in the rainforest among snakes and wallabies in a former Taoist temple, strangely enough. I also get around to a bit of poetry, surfing, Muay Thai, ecstatic dance, and Zen. Share your email below for (rare) sneak peeks from my secret book:
