I am passionate about:
HELPING THOSE WHO CAN'T HELP THEMSELVES
RETIRED ATTORNEY - FOUNDATION DIRECTOR
WORLD ACCESS PROJECT, INC.
I have been using a wheelchair for 42 years as the result of a skiing injury while I was in the U.S. Air Force. I later went to college and law school and practiced law for 20 years in the areas of criminal defense, family law, disability rights and social security. My disability has given me the opportunity to help many others, and that has become the purpose of my life.
I live in the state of Mexico, about a 3 hour drive NW of Mexico City (an hour north of Toluca). I have a sister-in-law who lives in Guadalajara. Maybe the next time we're there you and I can get together.
I am an American, living in Mexico, with the purpose of providing mobility (wheelchairs, crutches, walkers, canes, etc.) to people with disabilities. Whatever you do, please make all structures, pathways, roads, etc. accessible for all types of disabilities. I'd be happy to help you, as a wheelchair user, with accessibility designs.
