3.14. Geoff Matesky-Writer, I T Engineer
Geoff Matesky Bio:
I am a parent, writer, I.T. engineer, musician, and perhaps least importantly, the occupant of a wheelchair for the past 25 years. As the survivor of a spinal cord injury at age 19 that left me paralyzed from the chest down, I have been an avid scuba diver, sailor and salt water fisherman; I competed in the 1992 Barcelona Paralympic Games as a member of the U.S. Disabled Swim Team, and have partaken in activities as far flung as mono-skiing, parasailing and adaptive water skiing. I am also past President of the National Spinal Cord Injury Association, Connecticut Chapter.
