A neuroscientist gets his work featured in his dream publication, only to see it spiral out of control.

French-Israeli Moran Cerf is a neuroscientist at the California Institute of Technology ('Caltech') and the departments of neurosurgery at UCLA and NYU, studying memories and emotions using electrodes implanted deep inside the brains of patients undergoing neurosurgery. Prior to his career in opening and studying brains, Moran used to work as a hacker in various security companies, breaking into banks and financial institutes to make a living. Moran has been involved with the Moth for several years, as a 7-times StorySLAM champion and the Los Angeles GrandSLAM champion, as well as with the MothSHOP Community Education Program. With a short-lived career as a pilot, a radio host, an inventor, a filmmaker and a furniture designer, Moran is still seeking his true passion in life, while actively trying to avoid Kryptonite.
