A 27 year old wheelchair user living in Glasgow, my passion is to promote access and inclusion on a global scale, through consultancy, writing and speaking engagements.

I've been fortunate enough to work as the primary accessibility consultant for the 2016 Olympic and Paralympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, and authored the accessible Lonely Planet guide to the city.  I've presented BBC documentaries, delivered a TED Talk, spoken to audiences at global travel summits and disability conferences, and was the first wheelchair user to cross the Sinai Desert via camel! 

Please do get in contact if you require an accessibility consultant for your organisation, a speaker for your event, or if you want to join one of my writing workshops - coming in 2019.
