Disability Horizons was founded by Srin Madipalli and Martyn Sibley who both have a physical impairment called Spinal Muscular Atrophy.
Martyn Sibley lives in Cambridgeshire, but is often blogging somewhere around the world on his accessible travels and adventures. He is a published author of ‘Everything is Possible‘, a professional speaker, social media consultant, and previously worked as a product development executive at the disability charity Scope.
Martyn graduated from Coventry University with a masters degree in Marketing and a bachelors degree in economics. Since university, Martyn has become an influential voice in the world of disability, media and travel. Mostly through his pioneering use of social media and e-campaigning. In 2016, he was named the 3rd most influential disabled person. His aims have consistently been to inspire, inform and change the world for disabled people.
Srin Madipalli lives in London and worked as a lawyer at a leading international commercial law firm in the City of London. He graduated from King’s College, University of London with a first class degree in Biochemistry and received the university’s nomination for best undergraduate in the UK’s Science, Engineering and Technology student awards. Following that, Srin re-qualified as a lawyer and advised some of the world’s leading corporations and financial institutions. After four years in practice, Srin left the law to commence an MBA at Oxford University’s Saïd Business School with a focus on entrepreneurship.
When he is not being a corporate lawyer or an aspiring entrepreneur, Srin loves to travel and experience adventures of a more extreme kind in their wheelchair accessible form! Some past adventures have included scuba diving, flying a plane, wheelchair trekking through mountains and a camping safari in Africa. In the second half of 2010, he took some time out from work to go travelling around the world for four months and consequently takes a keen personal interest in trying to encourage disabled people to travel more.
