Intro to my website.

If you’re new here, I hope this page will be a good starting point to my website. If you’re a frequent visitor, you can still get a lot out of this page. Think of it like a quick reference guide. Screen reader users can have a landing page to browse without having to work through menus and trees and lists and child pages and the like.

That’s a thing people should understand right off the bat. Screen reader users are a priority for me. Making things easier on sighted people isn’t as high on my list. I guess that’s because I’m totally blind myself. I used to be legally blind until my 2017 birthday when Glaucoma robbed me of my previous 20/200 vision.

I tried to make things easier for low vision readers before I lost my vision. I hope the contrast makes it easy.

Now, onto what I do and what I’m all about. I’m an author, speaker, advocate, editor, and accessibility consultant and tester. I’m a proud gay male. I’m a journalist but I also dabble in fiction from time to time. I often start or assist in many advocacy causes. I aid research firms, teams, and companies actively researching accessibility. It’s rare that I do any of this for free.

I’m a huge advocate and consumer of audiobooks, audio dramas, and movies and TV shows with audio description.

I stutter so prefer written communication.

I’ll answer emails faster than voicemails, if I even answer voicemails at all.

Below will be some quick links and screen reader tips.
