About the Guest:
I work every day to make the world better for blind people. At Be My Eyes, we understand that visual impairment is not only a spectrum of visual acuity, but cuts across every demographic, geography and philosophical boundary. Only once we bring people with low or no vision together into a unified community can we move the needle on social issues, healthy lifestyles and universal design. We’re building that community at Be My Eyes. Sign up – either as an individuals or a company – today.
My past work can be found at: NPR, The New York Times, New Yorker, VICE and The Atlantic, LightHouse for the Blind, and as an accessibility/inclusion consultant for Fortune 50 companies. Founder of The Holman Prize for Blind Ambition.
