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.
