Interested in working with me to make your destination or business inclusive of people with disabilities?
Maybe you’re a long-time WheelchairTravel.org reader or maybe you’ve stumbled upon my page while searching for an accessible travel expert to collaborate with.
Either way, here’s a bit more about me, my background, what sets WheelchairTravel.org apart from every other travel blog, and most importantly, how I can help you reach a highly engaged audience of disabled travelers in the United States and around the globe.
Hello! I’m John Morris
In 2012, I had a car accident that left me a triple amputee and wheelchair user. I faced a long recovery, but in 2014 took my first trip as a wheelchair user. In the years since, I have flown more than a million miles and traveled to more than 50 countries around the world.
I am a content creator who is results-driven — my goal, above all else, is to connect disabled people with the information and resources needed to open their world. I accomplish that through hundreds of engagements with destinations, hotels, airlines and other travel providers — businesses that use my expertise to gain their share of the accessible travel market segment.
I hold a Master’s degree in history from Florida State University and an MBA from the University of Florida. My broad experience, education, and skillset can be a tremendous asset to your project or team, and I look forward to working with you!

How We Can Work Together
Here are a few ways that I can bring value to your organization:
