I am a 54 year old military vet, husband, step-father, counsellor, brother and active advocate for people living with disabilities, helping identify societal barriers to PLWD, advocate for positive change and equitable inclusion. I am also living with multiple invisible disabilities/ health conditions and working to overcome poverty in my families life. I have some modest income from self employment
My disabilities affect me by limiting the duration of my daily physical activity, including limiting my standing ability to less than about 3 minutes at a time, progressively less frequently as pain and fatigue increases. There are also variable limitations that slow down reading, learning and information processing times. None of this has prevented my educational achievement, earning a Bachelor's degree in 1995, a graduate Diploma in 2004, and as a first in generations of my family achieved in 2007 a Master's degree. I work in a professional occupation to the extent I am able, I serve as a volunteer on a number of community group boards, executives and organizing bodies.
I have found meaningful and rewarding activities that enrich me and my inclusion in community life.
