Residential Access Coordinator

He/Him/His

I worked for Easy Does It Emergency Services for the Berkeley Disability Community from its inception in the early ’90s until 2020. I helped with the Measure E campaign, which passed in ’95 funding this service and remained most of its budget. I created the Emergency Repair service within this .org, which Repaired Wheelchairs and other Durable Medical Equipment (DME).

I moved to Berkeley to attend U.C. Berkeley in 1987 and immediately became involved in this vibrant community. I made deep friendships and helped work on many community projects right away and continue to this day.
