When I was 19 I trained myself to lucid dream frequently so that I could eat all the junk food I love in my dreams, while eating a strict raw paleo diet in the physical world. To this day I still use lucid dreaming to eat junk food but I've explored many other applications for lucid dreaming. I want to share lucid dreaming with more people.
I founded and ran Dream Hackers Club at Chicago's hackerspace Pumping Station One, a club that explored how technology could be used in conjunction with dreaming. Later, I co-ran the Chicago Lucid Dreamers Meetup group for some time where I conducted a weekly lucid dreaming book club and workshop.
