  That's me a couple of months before my injury (full picture)...


  That's me about 6 and a half years after my injury (full picture)...

  That's me about 4 months before the 9th anniversary of my injury (full picture)...

Here's a picture of me at Florida Hospital Waterman giving a presentation titled: Where I Now "Stand" -- The View from a Power Wheelchair.  I've done more than 100 presentations since the year 2000.

UPDATE 1/15/2011: I've uploaded some more photos to my Facebook page (befriend me!:). 

UPDATE: 1/1/2012: See my girlfriend Lisa & me on my "full story" for SCI people page!
MGT Photo Gallery -- This link shows the original MGT photo gallery.  I built the original MGT website and also agreed with the decision that we needed to move to a more technically sophisticated website (one with e-commerce capabilities, something I wasn't comfortable doing with my self-taught website-development abilities).  On the following gallery pages, some of the links now go to the new MGT website.  All of the picture links work; both the regular and the darkened photos are available, and the links to the bowling scores (mentioned with some captions) are available also.  Enjoy -- wait -- one other note, those photos show how we used to bowl.  Since the IKAN Bowler® is now sanctioned for league play -- any bowling league, anywhere in the U.S. -- we can no longer cross the foul line with the end of our Bowlers (previously we kept our wheels behind the line, which is akin to an able-bodied bowler keeping their feet behind the foul line).
  Also, we used to bowl with the end of our bowling "ramps" elevated, so we would finish with our "bowling arm" in the air, over the lane, much like able-bodied bowlers.  We modified the design so that we have a caster supporting the end of the IKAN Bowler® when the ball comes down (the IKAN unit is properly adjusted when this caster is about 1/4th of an inch off the bowling surface, with the ball atop the unit, in its starting position).  The force of a 16-lb ball coming down the patented parabolic-shaped arm, is much more significant than many people might imagine.  With the caster, we translate that energy into maximum ball speed and minimum force to the connected wheelchair.  If you're still reading this explanation, please checkout the photo gallery now!  :-)
I will eventually put more pictures up (mostly post accident) but, for now, you can see several others by visiting the various pages of my website:)...
