Chris at home

What I like best about my work is being able to connect with an audience, taking some strange idea and making it into a joke that everyone can relate to.

—Chris, a comedian


Your future is open. Although people with disabilities often face barriers moving into the world of work, many do succeed. Many discover exciting jobs inspired by their interests and abilities.

Each month Open Futures will introduce you to three people with disabilities who believed in themselves and followed their dreams. Open Futures will also lead you to resources that will help you open up your future.

This Month, Meet:
