My name is Patrick Dennis and I joined the disability community in 2003, although I didn't know it until late 2004 when I was finally diagnosed with what was dubbed "early aggressive" rheumatoid arthritis (RA). It took me nearly seven years to really learn how to live my life with RA but during that time I found my path towards disability advocacy. I've since attended and graduated law school and worked with a number of fine advocacy organizations.

I have had the pleasure of living in nearly every corner of the United States. I call Oregon home but I live and work in Washington, DC and enjoy the company of my incredible wife and our two endlessly entertaining pups. 

I hope to use this blog to discuss disability issues as well as look at plenty of other topics - sometimes through a disability lense and sometimes not.
