Bill Shannon says we all have our crutches.
Shannon’s are literal—he has a bilateral hip deformity due to a childhood illness, and has turned his crutches into an art, riding a skateboard better than almost anyone I know all while using his crutches. He uses his skateboard dancing to break barriers and open a playful but powerful communication between someone who is disabled and the general public.
Bill Shannon’s got an awesome attitude and has found a way to not only thrive despite his challenges, but because of them.
Awesome work, Bill.
