Joe Quirk lost his eyesight in a traumatic incident which no one should ever have to endure. Joe picked himself and made himself a Vetter-Man. Joe is a U.S. Navy Veteran, former electrician , published author, game creator, a son, and a friend of many. His drive is not only used on the golf course, he has a passion and a purpose and keeps moving forward. And he does it for his Blind community.
Joe started Mental Vision Games and produced his first audio immersive game, Circus Master’s Revenge, which is Free from the App Store!
Joe has published a book just 18 months after learning how to use VoiceOver on a Mac. Joe spent 5 months at the Heinz Veterans Administration in Chicago to gain the skills and confidence to live on his own. Cooking, laundry, woodworking and technology, Joe wanted it all.
