Our Mission

Provide Advocacy for Epilepsy through educated discussion and tools that normally can't be found through other existing support structures.

Done It

We are people with Epilepsy. We know what you are going through.


We distill what we've learned into layman's terms.

Our Host

David Clifford

Founder, Host of The Brain Ablaze Epilepsy Podcast

I'm a Software Engineer and Entrepreneur. Though retired now, I spent twenty years working in Silicon Valley tech for companies like Apple, Twitter, eBay, PayPal, Microsoft, and a series of small startups.

I'm not a medical professional, but just someone who has dealt with the ins and outs of Epilepsy through more than a quarter of a century of uncontrolled seizures.

Jo Mackenzie


I’m not medically qualified in any way but I have been dealing with the not-so-niceties of epilepsy with uncontrolled seizures for 30 years.
I write the Goldilocks Complex blog and am studying a BA (Hons) Arts and Humanities specialising in English Language. I’m based in the UK, living life with epilepsy and a sense of humour.
