About Seth McBride

Seth McBride is a writer living in Portland, Oregon. When not serving as the news editor for New Mobility and writing features, he tries to stay as active as possible, whether it’s wheelchair rugby or handcycling in the summer, or skiing in the winter. This past summer he played on the U.S. Paralympic rugby team in Rio. His writing interests typically include anything related to fitness, physiology, sports and adventure, but he appreciates a good story on just about any subject. Writing for New Mobility, he finds that disability is just a small part of a larger story.
