– Had a stroke in 2005 while in hospital for a shunt revision to treat hydrocephalus. The stroke damaged the occipital lobe of his brain, initially allowing him to see only light and shadows. While has recovered some sight since then, remains functionally and legally blind. Condition is called Cortical Visual Impairment/ Cerebral Visual Impairment.
– Despite such adversity, has written and published two books, is an active community volunteer and in August 2020 started a YouTube channel sharing his experience. Tries to find fun in everything , with a motto that ” “I’m on this planet for fun”.
– Also works for the Canadian National Institute for the Blind (CNIB) as the Program Lead for Career Support and Community Education, where he himself received wonderful help when he needed it. At CNIB he talks to people about sight loss and the help provided by CNIB.
