My Interests

I like to keep myself busy, especially my mind, well, I am getting on a bit now, so I need to keep those cogs turning!  I volunteer with with two disability related companies/charities.  Disability Horizons & Ruils.

In my spare time, when I have some, I campaign for better access on the high street.  To help publicise what I am trying to achieve, I created Accessibility Denied to bring awareness and hopefully help retailers make the necessary changes regarding accessibility and help them understand why it is so important  to disabled people.

I am also in the process of writing a book.  Having a disability can cause limitations to your sex life.  Therefore needing one to be more inventive and creative in the way you can have sex.  I hope my book “Wheely Lots of Fun” demonstrates that with some changes to positions and introducing sex toys, you can still have a fulfilling and satisfying sex life.

As if I was a glutton for punishment, I am in the process of learning how to do 3D modelling.  What is it they say?  No rest for the wicked!!  Ha ha.

Volunteering

I volunteer with Disability Horizons alongside their Partnerships Manager.  I work with outside companies and help them with their queries regarding submitting articles/blogs for DH’s website. 

Recently, DH have asked me to one of their writes, which I am very excited about.  I’ve submitted my first article and awaiting a date for publication.

I volunteer with Ruils where we go out to schools with our disability awareness workshops.  We (volunteers living with a disability) challenge students views about disability and support them in their understanding of disability. 

Hobbies

Accessibility in the 21st century, is not something disabled people should still be fighting for.  But unfortunately we are.  I created Accessibility Denied to bring awareness and hopefully change, to companies regarding accessibility and help them understand why it is so important  to disabled people.

I have had some success as well as some failures.  Some retailers just ignore their responsibilities and blatantly tell you they will not change anything.  While other retailers are extremely helpful and make the necessary changes.

While enjoying what I do, I have also been to college to learn more about web designing.  This included using the following programmes, some of which I am versed in using and others, still learning.

I am in the process of writing about Disability and sex.  These subjects are normally taboo, Wheely Lots of Fun breaks those taboos.  Having a disability can cause limitations when being intimate with your partner.  Therefore needing one to be more inventive and creative.

In my book, I hope to show you that with some changes to positions and how intimate toys can aid in posture and help you achieve your favourite position and enjoy the many pleasures that come with love making!

I have just started learning how to make 3D models using a programme called Blender.  I’m taking a course viah Udemy and loving every minute of it.  It is extremely confusing at times as I am used to creating 2D images and now having to think in 3D.

I will showcase My Projects for anyone interested in 3D.  Whatch this space!
