About Seth McBride

Seth McBride is a writer living in Portland, Oregon.

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.
