Professor of Behavioral Psychology at New York University.
I was born and raised in the South Bronx of New York City.
Ever since I was little, I enjoyed watching people walk down a street and imagining they had an incredible life story worth sharing.
When I was in middle school, I joined a 3-week long psychology course and started reading Carl Jung’s “The Archetypes and The Collective Unconscious” (for the first time). A few years later, I found myself at the NYU, attending graduate psychology program.
Psychology and then the Master of Arts in General Psychology. During my studies, the main focus was on behavioral neuroscience and social psychology, and it led me to become the Professor of Behavioral Psychology at New York University.
