Dr. Brainlove

Dr. Brainlove is a collaborative science outreach project that manifested as a 27-ft long brain-shaped mobile jungle gym with EEG interactive LEDs. As the Project Manager, I worked to bring together a team of 50+ volunteer scientists and engineers, raise $29k through crowdfunding, and debut the project at Burning Man 2014. Check out the Indiegogo page and the Facebook group.

I was an invited panelist for a workshop hosted by Indiegogo, “Dust & Funds: Running a successful Indiegogo Campaign for Burning Man 2014!”.  You can check out the YouTube video here

I recently presented on a panel about the formation of the Dr. Brainlove community at SXSW Interactive 2015.
