Geoff Dossetor

" I enjoy going to the football to see the mighty Hawks, attending the Australian Open tennis, exhibitions, movies and my daily jaunt to a local cafe to get out of the house, have a coffee and read the sport pages."

Geoff had a Hang Gliding business in Queenstown, New Zealand. With over 2000 hours of incident‐free flying time under his belt, an awkward tandem landing left him with a C4/5 spinal cord injury. He is a committed single father to his young daughter.

Geoff is also an artist, and has a scholarship with the Association of Mouth & Foot Painting Artists (MFPA) to further his mouth painting career. He’s a passionate Hawks supporter and gets to many local matches. In the summer he loves to go to the Australian Open.

You can read more of Geoff's life story in his blog article here and another article with a more humorous take on getting out and about in a wheelchair here.

Geoff is living with C4 complete spinal cord injury for the past 16 years.
