Over the past 30 years he has seen promising emerging technologies transform into powerful products for people with disabilities including voice-control and eye-tracking. Eddy has been a salesperson and a therapist, but has always seen himself as an assistive technology educator, believing that knowledgeable consumers evolve into more powerful and independent tech users. Eddy works patiently but diligently to train people to expand their technical skills because poorly implemented technology solutions can be so overwhelming and frustrating.
