Travis Davis remembers the first time he realized the impact of sharing his story -- a simple lunchtime conversation that encouraged him to start talking about his life with cerebral palsy.

Since that pivotal conversation, Travis has become a TEDx speaker, podcaster and local disability advocate in New Mexico. He has a bachelor’s degree in English, a master’s degree in Adapted Physical Education, and is ADA Coordinator certified.

In this episode, Travis talks about that lunchtime encounter, as well as:

  • When he was a substitute teacher, why he encouraged his students to ask him questions about his disability
  • The chance meeting on an airplane that introduced him to wheelchair basketball
  • Why he started his "Off The Crutch Podcast" about his experiences with cerebral palsy
