I am an artist who specializes in the intersection of art and science.  Since my diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis, I've used medical technology to create art as a way of taking ownership of my disease. I transform the often unsettling and clinical black-and-white brain scans into work that invites others to contemplate the beauty of the brain, to discuss what it means to live in an imperfect body, and to stare directly at the imperfect brain's beauty and complexity with curiosity. 

As my disease has progressed, my practice has evolved.  I am currently working on a project aimed to transform the untapped potential of time spent in waiting rooms of clinics. I am an ePatient scholar and advisor for Stanford Medicine X, and I publish articles about patient-centered healthcare, design, and the arts on Mind on Fire, my blog. Through my art, published articles and speaking engagements around the globe, I challenge others to question what it means to be imperfect — to be human.
