We started “The Gene and Dave Show”, a show for and about people with disabilities in 2009. Along with my friend and co-host David Dauber, we write, direct and edit video, and put shows on Austin Public TV. We also caption our shows. We interview people whether disabled or not, on all sorts of subjects including recreation, art, employment, law, health assistive technology and anything else we think would be interesting to share.
One of my favorite shows to film is SXSW. Every year we go to SXSW, the largest interactive conference in the world. Located here in Austin TX, it last about 2 weeks. Of course, there are many presentations panels and movies to attend at this conference. We always enjoy going though the trade show exhibits. There is an incredible amount of technology there. Some of it specifically for people with disabilities, some products can be used to great effect by people with disabilities but simply not marketed in that fashion. Of all the vendors there, we like to stop at Knowbility.
We have won many awards for our work. Recently, Gene and Dave received the inaugural 2019 Lynn Marie Johnson Media Arts Award at the Art Spark Artist of the Year awards. Our show has won many awards throughout the years.
