Dylan, the founder and President of Wheelchair Adventures. Born and raised in South Dakota, Dylan's life took a significant turn when a car accident/suicide attempt at the age of 18 resulted in a C2/C3 spinal cord injury, leaving him as a quadriplegic.

For years following his injury, Dylan believed he would never be able to enjoy activities he once loved, such as being an avid outdoorsman. However, his perspective changed when he discovered adaptive equipment that allowed him to participate in hunting and fishing, opening up a new world of outdoor enjoyment while living in a wheelchair. Dylan has successfully engaged in deer, turkey, and antelope hunting using an adaptive gun mount and track wheelchair. He has also experienced the thrill of Walleye fishing with an electric reel.

Dylan's passion lies in finding or creating adaptive equipment and experiences for individuals with disabilities to enjoy outdoor sports. He named his organization Wheelchair Adventures, as he believes that every day in a wheelchair is an adventure. Dylan understands the ups and downs of life and emphasizes the importance of taking it one day at a time. His favorite motto is "adapt and overcome."

In addition to his work with Wheelchair Adventures, Dylan works part-time at Nybergs Ace and resides in Sioux Falls, SD with his service dog, Linda.
