Born in Berkeley, California, after training at Brown University and UC San Francisco, I am a board certified dermatologist practicing in San Francisco.
In the early 1990's, I began tracking skin conditions in movies. In 1996, I established www.skinema.com, posting images of actors and characters in movies with skin conditions.
This blog is an extension of that project, exploring skin conditions as seen in the media.
None of the individuals shown or discussed are my patients, and none of the images are clinical photos taken in a doctor's office.
