Tony Jacobsen is the author of ‘Disable Your Disability: Live the Healthy Life You Deserve!’, the creator of the #UNBREAKABLE movement, a YouTuber and Podcaster, and is an expert when it comes to speaking on the topic of disability awareness.
Tony was born with a physical disability called Osteogenesis Imperfecta. Osteogenesis Imperfecta (OI) is a genetic bone disorder characterized by fragile bones that break easily. It is also known as “brittle bone disease.” The term literally means “bone that is imperfectly made from the beginning of life.” A person is born with this disorder and is affected throughout his or her lifetime.

As an author and public speaker, Tony focuses on how society at large can look at disability differently and learn to be aware and accept people with disabilities. On the flip side, Tony also takes a stand to speak to people with disabilities on how they can work to view disabilities differently as well as how to make the necessary adjustments to bring disability to the forefront of conversation within society–from micro to macro situations. No matter the audience, Tony speaks about embracing disabilities!
Tony is available for speaking engagements (corporate, school, conferences, seminars, etc.) as well as interviews for television, radio, and podcasts.

Tony is the author of Disable Your Disability, a book about learning how to live the healthy life you deserve despite your physical limitations. He was born with Osteogenesis Imperfecta (brittle bones) and has endured 70+ fractures throughout his life. At the ripe young age of 42, he had to embrace his disability to save his life, so against all odds, pushed himself through an 8-month physical transformation that ended up being just as important mentally and emotionally.
Tony also loves music. He’s been an emcee and DJ since the mid-80’s and has DJ’d professionally since 1996 (and continues to do so!). He’s created and released independent hip hop music, and found most of his success when he and his wife, Teemaree, released 3 albums as Dynamite Jive in the early 2000’s.
In addition to all this, Tony has worked professionally in the television/film industry since 2001, and created his own company, Egg Sandwich Media, to work as a one-man-production-band; wearing the hat of Producer all the way to Video Editor.
He currently lives in Detroit, MI with his wife and they enjoy their empty-nester life in the desert.
