I am a late-deafened adult with bilateral HiRes 90k implants. After using a mostly ineffective hearing aid for 12 years, the implants had a dramatic impact on my life. At home, I can now hear my wife and children. At work, my responsibilities have changed from sitting in front of a computer all day to include participating in meetings, and even business travel!

My favorite thing about my AB Cochlear implant is
The ability to communicate with family, friends and colleagues.
With my AB cochlear implant, I can
Relax in social situations, use a telephone (including a cell phone) and enjoy music.
My favorite sound is
My childrens' voices!
I chose AB because
As an engineer, I can appreciate the upgradeability of the implant itself. I plan to use them for a very long time, and look forward to continued improvements in my hearing in different situations as the technology advances.
I am a BEA Mentor because
It gives me great satisfaction to be able to help others experience the improved quality of life afforded by cochlear implants.
I can help cochlear implant candidates by
listening to your concerns, sharing common experiences, and providing assistance and guidance in choosing an implant.
