By Anne-Laure Le Cunff

I left my job at Google two years ago. I’m now dedicating my time and energy to helping makers achieve their potential without sacrificing their mental health. I run Ness Labs and study neuroscience at King's College London. I'm also a member of the Society for Neuroscience and a certified Mental Health First Aider. My work has been featured in WIRED, Forbes, Rolling Stone, the FT, and more.
