Chief Technology Officer, Gale Healthcare Solutions
“It is an honor to serve on the board of Special Olympics New York. I have long held a passion for sports and for promoting a more inclusive society by helping everyone to be ‘what they ought to be’, as Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. once said. SONY brings these two areas of interest together; using the power of sports to help people with intellectual differences to discover new strengths. Programs such as Unified Sports help to create a better world by fostering the acceptance and inclusion of all people. I hope that my experience will help to promote technology that can be transformative for our athletes in New York and around the world.”
