Special Instructions

Biographical Information: 

A congenitally blind business owner, Lewis was fortunate to have been mainstreamed into the public school system.  As a result of the excellent instruction that he received as a child, he is a fluent Braille reader and writer and a strong advocate for Braille literacy for students who cannot affectively access large print. These acquired Braille reading and writing skills allowed him to attain a comprehensive formal education.  A Master of Arts in English has imparted to him the necessity for both written and verbal skill-sets.  A Master of Science in Special Education (Blind Rehabilitation) has broadened his once myopic perspective of persons who are blind and visually impaired as well as persons who have secondary disabilities that may or may not be associated with their visual impairment.

He has an extensive background in assessing, training, and recommending adaptive technology solutions for persons who require adaptive speech and/or Braille solutions.  He also has done some career exploration with people transitioning from their educational experiences into the job market.

He has been employed in both product management and sales management capacities for leading manufacturers in the adaptive technology industry serving the needs of both domestic and international markets. Over ten years ago, he founded Flying Blind www.flying-blind.com which is his own company that provides business development consulting, website remediation, training, and reselling services to institutions and individuals in need of customized adaptive technology solutions. Lewis’s personal interests include hiking and other outdoor activities, reading, music, following a variety of sports, participating and competing in a couple of different Martial Arts, and practicing Yoga.
