From Disability to Disruption

A new approach to design for UC Berkeley Engineering

From disability to disruption, Gil shares the secret powers of dyslexia with members of UC Berkeley’s engineering program. Gil uncovers the dyslexic artists, writers and entrepreneurs who changed the world, then weaves their stories through his own journey of self-discovery from an artistic childhood to the founding of his own business, Gershoni Creative.
