Blindness was a part of Hoby Wedler’s life from day one, and yet he still manages to accomplish remarkable feats. In high school, Wedler he enrolled in honors chemistry and chose to pursue a career in the field as a food and beverage sensory expert. He studied at the University of California, Davis, earning a doctorate in organic chemistry. In 2011, with the help of Francis Ford Coppola, he created 'Tasting in the Dark;' the program takes sighted people through a wine tasting experience in total darkness. A truly blind event!
"I was born completely blind. As a blind person living in a sighted-world you can pick one of two attitudes and my parents helped me pick the right attitude.”
The San Diego Center for the Blind can assist you in many ways, including Assistive Technology for the Visually Impaired.
