John Furniss has overcome remarkable obstacles in his life.

At age 16, he survived a suicide attempt by a self-inflicted gunshot and learned how to navigate the world with total blindness. After years of meth addiction, John was able to clean up and the healing began.

Today he is an artistic woodworker and motivational speaker. His talks focus on overcoming personal limitations, viewing the world in new ways and disability etiquette. He has three years of experience speaking to schools, church groups, art groups, and most recently as a VANTalks speaker at Kiggins Theatre.

Please email to inquire about booking him to speak at your event!
