My name is Jason Eien. Are you talking about the blind actor Daron
Harbor in Kentucky? If so, I live in Tennessee and I told him that I may
move to Kentucky and I'll help him out. I heard him give a speech at the
2018 Kentucky state convention. I'll be happy to work with him! I'm
totally blind. I have good typing skills with the screen reader Jaws. So
if he wants, he could give me a call and I'll make plans to work with him.
My phone number is 714-561-7707. My email is jrosolino71 at gmail.com
I'm into writing and acting, because my dad was a famous trombone
player. I want to write a movie about my life with a couple of my dad's
songs in it. We could work good together, because I could do the writing
and he could help me find the right actors for the movie I'm writing. Have
a happy new year! Sincerely,

I have a chapter member, who, prior to his vision loss, was involved in
acting, directing, and writing drama. He is currently the Director of the
Drama Ministry for his church.
As his vision diminishes , he has done little to obtain alternative skills
such as learning to type non-visually. In fact, he tells me he did not type
well when he could see better. Over the course of time, he hired typist to
do his work for him. After a recent brush with what I would say "a bad
actor", I am trying to encourage him to learn some skills but, in the
interim, his work in drama needs to continue.
Within the last few weeks, his church and all involved, agreed to perform a
play I have written for Black History Month. I did the typing on that one.
However, I am interested in your thoughts on where he could reach out for
typist (he will pay) and other thoughts on how it has worked for you in such
a situation. I appreciate your comments.
