I know ASL and I speak and listen.
Progressive hearing loss from childhood to profound by late teens.
Advanced Bionics CI in right ear since Feb 2014 has been amazing.
Education-undergrad degree in studio art, Master's degree in biology and medicine, hopefully an MD soon.

I'm here to shatter the how to be Deaf myths. I speak and sign and always have.
Feb 6, 1986 (Age: 35)


Progressive hearing loss now severe to profound for a decade before getting a cochlear implant at age 27.
Now rocking the cyborg life.
I've known ASL since I was 4 but prefer to speak AND sign.
I have masters degrees in medical science and kicking ass.
