life before the brain injury
Before John's brain injury he was a successful instructional designer. John spent many years designing training programs, curriculum, and materials for large organizations.
the moment everything changed
One evening a gold Mercedes changed everything by plowing into the back of his car at 100+ miles per hour.
the new normal
The accident, and lack of any immediate diagnosis led John down a spiral of frustration, confusion, and anger. After many months of unnecessary struggle created by a medical community that is unprepared to help someone walk through a traumatic brain injury, John finally got the right diagnosis and began his journey forward.
This time of intense struggle has been the catalyst for the rest of his life. Since then, he has written a book, launched the BISON project, and traveled the country speaking at events and conferences in support of the brain injury community.
