Tony is such an inspiring person. He came to our Red Ribbon Week at Eastbluff Elementary and talked candidly about his disability to our student body of about 350 kids, and some of the difficulties he faced as a kid.  But he turned it into a positive and showed the kids that with the right attitude there is nothing you can’t accomplish! He’s a hero at our school and when the kids hear that he’s coming, they’re elated! He’s a wonderful person with a great message for all.Beth Carter, VP Communication, Board Member Eastbluff P.T.A.

Tony Jacobsen is a terrific speaker!! He was the keynote presenter at the Fortieth Annual Southern California Petroleum Industry Charity Association Golf & Tennis Tournament to benefit The Osteogenesis Imperfecta Foundation fundraising event. Tony spoke with great energy, passion, and wisdom about what it takes to be successful in life while living with a disability! He is a natural and was very well received by our attendees. I highly recommend him!Heidi Glauser, Executive Board Member, SCPICA
[Tony] is an amazing inspirational speaker! Besides his vast accomplishments in the DJ, music and entertainment industry, he has an incredible life story, overcoming a disability which would leave most people bedridden. Instead he shows people how they too can be successful by being themselves, working hard and never giving up. He has a wonderful message for people of all ages and his warm, easy-going personality grabs your attention and doesn’t let go.Tara Reilly Tung, Eastbluff P.T.A.

More About My Journey as a Speaker

I’ve spent my life in front of audiences.  Through performing original music, DJing, acting, and now professional speaking, I’ve honed my skills and enjoy entertaining, educating, and transforming audiences of all types.

I love to write and I released my first book in 2017. You can purchase a copy of “Disable Your Disability: Live The Healthy Life You Deserve!” here. In addition to the promotion of this book, I’ve started writing two new books – “Remain Solid” and “Breaking Barriers, Not Bones” – both of which are extensions of the stories and ideas I present in “Disable Your Disability”.

Outside of my speaking and writing, I run a small video production company called Egg Sandwich Entertainment, and I’ve also pursued my passion for music as a producer, rapper, and DJ.

My wife, Teemaree, and I live in Los Angeles, California and have been married for 16 years. In my free time, I enjoy working out, watching movies, listening and creating music, writing, acting, improvising, and brainstorming new business ideas.
