About Kenny Salvini

A semi-retired adrenaline junkie turned writer, Kenny Salvini lives in Sumner, Washington. He is a C3-4 complete quad from a snow skiing accident in 2004. He amuses himself by writing a blog, “Typical Guy, Atypical Situation,” which started as a way to cope with life in a wheelchair but has recently transformed into a chronicle of his evolution as an advocate. In 2013 he started The Here and Now Project, a social support network for paralysis survivors and their families in the Northwest.
