I am a husband, father, son, brother, uncle and friend. I believe in sharing my talents and experiences by giving back to the community by giving my time to coaching, church and especially to the disability community. I truly believe that all men and women are created equally.
This year’s Self-Determination Conference is just around the corner. Tyler and I will once again be co-presenting at the Conference. We are part of a panel speaking on Emergency Preparedness and First Responders Disability Awareness Training.
Early Bird registration is now open for the 2013 Wisconsin Self-Determination Conference! Register by August 15, 2013 to take advantage of the discounted rates for this educational conference.
