Barriers? Ha! Web Design Expert Champions Accessibility

UX accessibility expert Derek Featherstone

Derek Featherstone has spent his life leaping over barriers—and helping others do the same.

“I was born with a club foot,” says the accessibility expert, “but I never let it get in my way. I’ve been in sports all my life and try never to make excuses.”

Though his left leg has always been weaker, and occasionally in casts, he teaches fitness classes and played competitive rugby for many years.

Oh, yeah—and he completed the Ironman Triathlon (a 2.4-mile swim and 112-mile bike ride followed by a marathon run) three times.
