Six-foot-six-inch Mick Ebeling is a big guy with a big heart. He lives in Venice Beach, California, with his wife and collaborator, Caskey, and their three sons, but his humanitarian work spans the globe. Mick stays busy as a film and TV producer, making commercials and trailers, as well as credit sequences and graphics for major movies. Yet he still finds time to assist those in need.
Mick first dipped his toe into helping others after learning about the plight of a man named Tempt. When this world-renowned graffiti artist was stricken by a serious medical issue, Mick formed a team of creative and eccentric geniuses who invented a device that could track Tempt’s eye movements, allowing Tempt to create art again.
Mick then learned about young boys who had lost limbs in the atrocious civil war in Sudan. He again found a solution, using technology to give these boys workable arms—and a new lease on life. Mick is committed to finding answers to problems that once seemed impossible.
Mick’s fascinating story is one of ten accounts in my upcoming book, (Extra)Ordinary: More Inspirational Stories of Everyday People, which will be released on October 10, 2017. To read Mick’s story, pre-order your paperback or ebook copy at http://kicamprojects.com/shop/extraordinary-more/.
