I am an artist who specializes in the intersection of art and science. I transform my brain scans into provocative images that challenge how society views the brain, disability and illness. Since my diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis, I have continually undergone brain scans to track the progression of my disease. I began using art to reinterpret these images. My work invites people to discuss what it means to live in an imperfect body, and to stare directly at the beauty and complexity of the imperfect brain with curiosity.

As my disease has progressed, my practice has evolved. I now use storytelling, technology, and design to focus on expanding the narrative of illness. 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.
