    Default Thump did a story on me...

    David Garber over at Thump wrote about me and my daily struggles as a blind DJ. I am just sharing this story here because it talks a bit about my DJing with Traktor and why that is so important to me today, and why I am a supporter of using the computer & controllers as DJ tools. Some of you here know my story, others don't... Please share my story if you like it, hopefully it inspires others with disabilities to always push forward. The only thing that can stop you is you!!

    Thank you, but the pleasure really is all mine.

    And thank you everyone else as well!


    I owe a lot to this board, since it really did help me learn, expand and develop my skills with controllers as my eye sight was deteriorating.

    Awesome!
    I've been aware of your situation from your posts on here, but to see it explained in that article is pretty inspiring.
    Good luck with the New baby as well. ....we were pretty late to the party having our daughter, but she's the single greatest thing in my life now.
    Cheers
