Mick Ebeling

Mick Ebeling is a career producer and filmmaker as well as founder and CEO of the Not Impossible Foundation, a multiple award-winning social innovation lab and production company whose mission is “changing the world through technology and story.” His mantra of “commit, then figure it out” allows him to convene a disparate team of hackers, doers, makers, and thinkers to create devices that better the world by bringing accessibility for all. The lab’s initiatives--including the EyeWriter, Project Daniel, Don’s Voice, and Music Not Impossible--have returned the ability to draw to a paraplegic street artist, 3D-printed arms for Sudanese amputees, and given “voice” to an ALS patient who hadn’t spoken in fifteen years. Ebeling is a recipient of the Muhammad Ali Humanitarian of the Year Award and has been listed as one of Wired’s “Agents of Change” as well as one of the most influential creative people by The Creativity 50’s. Ebeling’s book, Not Impossible: The Art and Joy of Doing What Couldn't Be Done, recounts the life experiences that led to the founding of Not Impossible.
