John ran projects and lead teams in several organisations. He was working for SA Police at the time of his accident. In 2017, he completed reading twenty-five books about people living with a disability. A question popped into his head... 'Why are biographies only written about famous people? He wanted to publish a book of twenty-five stories of unknown people with varying disabilities or disorders. John commenced a book project with the name 'MY disABILITIES', as it was better to focus on abilities, instead of disabilities. He used his team leadership and project management skills to benefit PWD (people with disabilities).
