My name is Taylor Arndt. I currently live in Austin, Tx where I currently work as an accessibility engineer helping ensure companies digital properties are accessible. These include mobile apps and websites. Another fact about myself is that I am blind. I was blind since birth only being able to see colors and shadows. As a result, I employ accessible teaching methods for all to be able to enjoy my courses.
