Policy Intern (2018 interim)

Spencer is a designer and consultant who's worked on everything from large scale sporting arenas to one-off, hand crafted furniture pieces. After nearly a decade in architecture and design, Spencer realized that he was ignoring one of his most valuable assets: his experience as a person with a disability. Since that revelation, he's become a licensed Registered Accessibility Specialist and a volunteer policy researcher CTD. He believes that as designers learn about the needs of their most unique users, their projects become stronger and more usable for everyone.
