TRAVELS FROM: California
Mike May has spent his life crashing through any and all barriers in his way. Blinded at age three, he defied expectations by breaking world records in downhill speed skiing; joining the CIA; and becoming a successful inventor, entrepreneur, and family man. Yet none of his extreme adventures tested him like the experimental surgery he undertook to restore his sight. The carefully constructed world that Mike May had built for 43 years was rocked in ways nobody could predict when he became one of only a handful of people in world history to regain vision from complete blindness. At the podium, Mike May's story, immortalized in the acclaimed book, Crashing Through: A True Story of Risk, Adventure, and The Man Who Dared To See, is a stunningly heroic odyssey that was always fueled by his simple motto, "there's always a way." There were countless reasons not to take this risk, yet one compelling reason to move forward… it was the one risk that would truly give hope not just to him and his family but to millions affected by blindness.
