Ather Sharif is the founder of EvoXLabs and SCI Video Blog. Prior to starting a business, Ather designed and developed websites and webapps. In March of 2013, a car accident took away his ability to use all of his limbs - making Ather a quadriplegic. That's when Ather realized how horribly inaccessible his past 7 years of work was to people with vision impairment, hearing impairment and cognitive disabilities. Now, Ather designs and develops accessible websites and webapps. Because the Web is for everyone.
Ather is also Philly's Geek of the Year 2015 and the creator of evoHaX and The Accessible World.
