IEET > Interns > Andrew Cvercko

Andrew Cvercko

Andrew Cvercko lives in Winsted, CT. He works at a drug rehab, teaching mindfulness meditation to people attempting to recover from drug and alcohol addictions. He considers himself a progressive Buddhist and has dedicated his life to bringing meditation techniques and the philosophy behind them to people who would normally not have access to these.

Andrew became interested in the future of technology and transhumanism from a very early age, having had the first of several mechanical heart valves put in his body at the age of three. His worldview is deeply connected to having artificial parts in his body.
