My Story

The tip of My story ~

 I was in a life threatening accident that partially severed my L5-S1 of my lower spinal cord. I was unable to walk without help and was told I would never walk again without help if at all. And that was the professional opinion of my future.
Although I heard them, my heart would not listen and I continued physical therapy. After being turned down by 11 surgeons across the US (they all feared they would only make things worse), I found one who was cowboy enough who wanted to try an experimental surgery.

Because I was young, had the right attitude,  and had no prior spinal surgeries; I was a prime candidate for the experiment surgery. We immediately put together a rock solid team of 5 top specialists in their own fields, and after much, much hard work on ALL sides, I got the use of my legs and the chance at a new beginning of my new life.

 After 3 major surgeries, bone marrow transplant, reinforced disc bolts, and relearning to walk & build strength over the muscle atrophy, No one who doesn’t already know can ever tell I ever was hurt.
I now stand and walk before you with my head held high, and even running around playing ball with my 8yr old son!

 I don’t have to tell you just how drastic my life changed, or the large list of people and worldly gains I took for granted, that fell away from me & my life as my life was shaken so drastically from all this. My attitude was strong & positive ‘most‘ of the time and while around others. But I wouldn’t be human if I didn’t admit to having some nights filled with doubt and self pitied pain. It was as if my soul was turned inside out and putting myself back together was too far away to reach some nights.

 My story could be a sad one if I let it, or if someone else was telling you all I lost along the way, my home, my marriage, my job, wayward friends, my money & retirement, and even a new love along the way that proved to be less than true…even losing my dignity when I needed help from another but didn’t always have someone.

But since I’m still alive & walking, I’m telling my story as I see fit; As a success story.

 Now after 2 years of full time physical therapy I am fitter and stronger than the average Man. I don’t have to go into the details to explain just how devastated my personal life had become by this time & how I had survived by taking on small & remote projects while working to get my strength back simultaneously as I struggled through physically.

 I refused disability foreseeing my return to life & career with high hopes, and so life required me to adapt & continue working ‘remotely’ & as a PM or project consultant for online campaigns of all sizes. I continued my work and my studies within my passion & profession of ‘Information Architecture’.

 I now have the unique chance to re-write my life better than ever! I am completely starting my life over personally and have the wisdom & solid heart to take me there. I am proud to announce that I have no notable or debilitating complications from my accident or the surgery.

 As I mentioned, I did refuse disability & now my desire is to finish my story with a happy ending by getting back into the work force full time. I’m looking for the right fit for me in a long-term position.

 I’ve overcome the challenge of being told I could never walk again. Now I am up to the challenge of finding a position where I can once again prove my abilities and strengths for a company long term.
You will never find a more loyal & dedicated Information Architect & creative PM than you will find in me. I am extremely adaptable and have multiple talents in many areas. Whether I am working as a PM, Information Architect, Web Developer, Graphic Designer, Manager, Marketing admin, or a mix of them all, I bring nothing but my best to every situation.

 With my MANY skills in Information Architecture; Web & Graphic Arts/ Design & Development, Online Brand & Identity Development, Frameworks, And with my 12+ yrs of wisdom on all the elements it takes for a successful online business campaign.
It’s only a matter of time before someone smart swoops in and grabs me up for their secret weapon to success as usual.
