About Michael Collins

Since his C5-7 spinal cord injury in 1988, Michael Collins has been bringing information about disability and accessibility to the mainstream and disability communities. Mike began writing for New Mobility in 1991 and is currently the author of two NM columns — Everyday Advocacy and Motorvation (as “Uncle Mike”). Besides writing, Collins has served as executive director of both the California State Independent Living Council and the National Council on Disability. He attributes much of his success to an ability to convert frustration into actions necessary to achieve change, and he strives to share that information in his writing.
