“Blessings in Disguise” - a performance and conversation with a musician/producer diagnosed with Ataxia

Ian Bouras Musician/Producer Strangely, life before Ataxia felt very guided, as I always felt there were certain paths we are expected to take. With Ataxia, I feel less stressed about following an expected path, as I am now in “uncharted waters.” Ataxia is an opportunity to be an innovator, and travel on paths less traveled. It is simply a roadblock to find your way around, which can allow you to do things that have never been done before. I hope to continue playing music and spreading awareness about Ataxia. Ataxia is not just a hindrance, it is an opportunity to push myself to do something that has never been done before.
