Davey (he/him/his) he explores how the world is built to suit abled and "typical" bodies. From his exploration he imagines ways to build a more inclusive world. Inclusive world building spans from reconfiguring teacher preparation programs, to restructuring public schools based on the premise of agency, to designing research spaces that better represent the spectrum of human diversity. His inspiration for these projects derives mostly from his children who daily unteach him all that he thinks he knows.
