‘Hey, there’s that blind skateboarding Dude!’
Brian Bushway hears that often, thanks to global TV programs, and his appearance with Daniel Kish in X Ambassador’s ‘Renegades’ music video which has over 20 million views on YouTube. Apart from being one cool California Dude, Brian is also one of the proudest legacies of the efforts by Daniel Kish to educate and liberate blind persons. One of our earliest students who lost his sight at 14, Brian uses his insights to help people find opportunities in their ‘blind spots’. Learn more about Brian.
The ‘Human Eclipse’
We’re still trying to figure that one out – it’s the monicker J got stuck with in a Weather Channel documentary about his abilities with FlashSonar™ Echolocation. Blind from the age of 12, Justin ‘J’ Steele-Louchart began teaching himself Perceptual Navigation based on materials published online by Daniel Kish. After more formal training with World Access For The Blind, we’re proud to have him as the newest member of our Team. Learn more about J.
