Blind Fury (Stephen Norris)

“Growing up, my mom wouldn’t allow me to use my lack of vision as a crutch. I remember one night, I told my mom when we were watching TV that I was thirsty and that I wanted something to drink.

She asked, “You got two feet right?”

I said, “Yeah.”

And she said, “I’ll tell you what. You go pour yourself something to drink. And if you make a mess, I’ll help you clean it up. But you’re going to try to do it.”

And that’s just how it was. My mom didn’t allow me to be all woe is me and be down on it.”

“I guess you could say I’m a serial entrepreneur at heart, and I’ve been blessed to have a lot of different experiences, starting with a childhood acting career, a stint in law, and then several businesses that I helped to found. Along the way I lost my sight to a degenerative eye disease.”

About Faces Behind the Screen

Inspired by the popular photo-interview project Humans of New York, we launched FBTS at the beginning of 2017 to spread awareness about web accessibility. Through photos and interviews, we have been able to share many unique stories that give everyday people a face, a voice, and an opportunity to share their story and perspective.

Our aim is to simply connect the world with these stories, offer a new perspective, hopefully, shatter common stigmas and preconceived notions, and remind everyone that the world wide web, including websites, apps, and other digital interfaces, needs to be accessible for everyone – including people with disabilities.
