I am a world traveling performer-who has, as a wheelchair user, used many forms of adaptive equipment and tech over the years. I also work in the games industry as a journalist; which grants me access to evolving technology and hardware. I just spent this last week at E3 (the Electronic Entertainment Expo), using my new, lightweight, fold anywhere electric wheelchair aiding my quest in being in the middle of the action regardless of accessibility. Technology is always at the forefront of my mind.
I enjoy the road less traveled- instead of focusing solely on disability and how technology has impacted that journey.
All tropes aside; come with me, traverse the exotic technologic landscape, and venture into why Virtual Reality compelled me into a major career shift. My first encounter with VR was much like a first date-hesitant, shy, and nervous starting out. By the end of the experience I was dazed, and flushed with euphoria. In other words; I was in Love and I was determined to be an active partner in this burgeoning, nascent relationship with VR and its industry, rather than a passive casual dater.
I am no longer just providing coverage and analysis for the industry I inhabit; but looking forward to shaping its path from within. Hopefully, someday that will take place, since VR has already taken me beyond every boundary imaginable.
