Pete Denman is a UX Designer at Intel.
He had difficulties at school because of dyslexia.
At age 20, he broke his neck and became paralyzed for the rest of his life.
A couple of years later, Pete started college with an art history class, using help from people who read and write for him because he couldn’t move his hands. He didn’t tell anyone in college he has dyslexia. His success with the first test inspired him, and Pete accomplished a degree in graphic design.
He applied for a job at Intel as a designer.
One of his biggest projects was redesigning the user interface for Stephen Hawkings’ computer that he used to speak.

For my report, I thought Craig Robinson would be a good selection. Craig Robinson is an actor, comedian, and former music teacher. I have been watching TV shows and movies with Craig before the age of 10. I have known that I wanted to go into the film industry before I knew how to multiply. Robinson likes to spread himself between interests and careers which I can relate to.
Craig started out as a music teacher after he finished college and quickly moved to comedy and acting, where he won a comedy festival and gained other kinds of recognition for his stand-up and comedy.
I loved this assignment. Once I started looking through career choices I felt more motivated then ever to stay focused on School and Art.
This a placeholder…
For my report, I selected the video editor and animator, Peter Szijarto. Like Peter, I was always drawn to film since I was a youngster, long, long ago. He worked a wide variety of jobs before finding his passion, which I can also identify with. Below is a screenshot that shows him and his milestones.
I am now working in the direction of video and video editing and I am having great fun doing so.
