My “About” is brief so you have more time to read my post.

I’ve had my disability since birth it’s called Arthrogryposis Multiplex Congenital, Google it if you want, but in a nutshell it’s all about twisted limbs and lots of corrective surgery as a child.

I live in Melbourne Australia and use an electric wheelchair for mobility.

Career wise I have had a great mix of jobs in the Corporate/Government environments and also the not-for-profit sector.

Surprise surprise, most of my work has been disability related, with a particular interest in working people with intellectual disabilities and their families.

The purpose for me having this blog is to share information that I believe needs to get out there.

Reviewing disruptive technology and services that empowers people with disabilities is something I’m very passionate about.

After reading my posts you will soon get a feel that my writing style which is short and sharp and easy to understand.

Some of my favourite words are “empowerment, assertiveness, respect, risk-taking and advocacy”

We are empowered when informed.
