Founder

Greg Landers, our founder and CEO, is one of the oldest men living in the San Francisco Bay Area with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD). He has been living in a quadriplegic state his entire adult life, and can breathe only via a ventilator. Having personally experienced the disadvantages and frustrations of being disabled, he has always been a strong advocate for people with disabilities. More importantly, he realized that people with disabilities could have a chance to excel in life, only if they are given help and opportunities. Unfortunately, most of the available programs extend as far as maintaining their daily lives. Clearly absent were programs for improving quality of life, such as: access to higher education, career and relationship development, traveling, and many other opportunities to experience all that life has to offer for people without disabilities. Because of that wide vacancy, Greg founded Living Beyond
