I believe in using the transformative power of creativity to achieve social justice.
Joseph Beuys once famously claimed that, “Every person is an artist.” In the words of the Spanish poet Antonio Machado, “Wanderer, your footprints are/ the path, and nothing else;/ wanderer, there is no path,/ the path is made by walking.” My work consists of interactions in the public sphere that create new connections in the community.
I have multiple sclerosis and that affects my life in many ways. As host of the What’s The Matter With Me? Podcast I share my experiences, challenges and triumphs as a person with MS. The podcast develops my Disability Consciousness and bridges me with my caregivers, doctors, the disabled community, and community-at-large.
If each person is an artist, and we create the road by walking, then it is up to us to create the world we want to see.
