My notes on the IASD

It was 2005...
I learnt about IASD while studying dreams at JFKU where I was part of a dream theatre group. Going to my first dream conference, I did not know what to expect, but the fact that a "Dream Ball" was on the agenda gave me the feeling that I might've somehow landed in the right place. After meeting people, attending lectures, and having a great time, I knew I was in the right place. Since then, I found the conferences to be a perfect stage for bringing dreams into waking reality- inspiring and addictive! It was like a dream really-a flying dream at that-and it continues to be.

Aside from performing at the annual conferences and leading a workshop, I've volunteered a couple of years, hosted the lecture series at the Dream Institute, and am volunteer-coordinating for the Montreal Conference.
