About Justin Porcano

Justin Porcano is a Senior Industrial Design Manager at Accenture Industry X. His interest in design for accessibility has followed the course of his own life – and that of his daughter. As a preschooler, she was diagnosed with Usher syndrome type 1B, which causes profound deafness, severe balance issues and vision loss in early childhood. It is essentially an attack on the senses. His daughter’s disease has fundamentally transformed his personal life and how he approaches his work as a designer. Justin is also the co-founder of Save Sight Now, a parent-led organization that funds research benefiting those with Usher syndrome Type 1B.
