This video was never intended to be seen. I was simply testing out a new camera. And then things in the kitchen went… well, not as planned. You never know what might happen when a quad is in the kitchen. Watch the video below to find out what worked – and what didn’t.
I’ve learned that if a child asks me a question, an adult is probably wondering the same thing. So in this video I show how I position myself to sleep at night. Everyone with a spinal cord injury is different. But side sleeping works best for me.

Abby Marsh is a C-5 quadriplegic and has a great blog over at In The Waiting. She is a talented artist (seriously, check out her work and order a custom portrait) and all-around awesome person. When she asked if I’d like to do a video with her, I jump (figuratively) at the opportunity. I hope this video is as informative as it was fun to make.

Watch the video below to see how it worked.

People often want to know how I drive. Since a picture is worth a thousand words, I figured a video would be even better. My friend Leslie Ostrander – a quad who uses a different type of hand controls – shot this video while she was visiting town. Click on the photo below to watch this video at BardCard.
Each year Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, hosts the Bayada Regatta, an adaptive rowing – or para-rowing – event. Watch the video below for an introduction to para-rowing and to see video of me rowing at this year’s regatta. For more information on para-rowing, read this BardCare article.
Taking a dance lesson took more courage than any other physical activity I’ve attempted. Yes, I row and play tennis and wheelchair rugby. I’ve tried adaptive rock climbing, sled hockey and downhill skiing. But dancing from my wheelchair has always been off-limits.Continue reading “The Courage to Dance (video)”
