BLIND GAMER / CONTENT CREATOR / video game ACCESSIBILITY CONSULTANT
At Super Bowl LIII, Microsoft released a commercial advertising the Microsoft Adaptive Controller. A controller designed for people with disabilities to be able to play video games they would not have had access before. In it they said, “When everyone plays, we all win.” It is estimated that 15% of the world’s population have some form of disability. Growing up, I gave up playing video games as a hobby because I would be frustrated that I couldn’t play the way my brother and my friends could. I want to change that so that the next generation of gamers could win regardless of what ability they have..

Starting in 2015, his entertaining YouTube series “Blind Gamer” fuses humour with his passion for playing video games while being very bad at it. He has generated good PR for the following brands and has garnered positive Media Coverage as a result.
In just a few short years he is considered a thought leader on accessibility in gaming and an advocate for developers to push video game accessibility forward. Steve is the top Blind Gamer in Canada and has worked with prominent clients in the video game industry.
Steve's contribution to our accessible design workshop was very constructive and all around eye-opening for the devs who attended. We're not going to develop games in the same way anymore.
