Marc Thorson

Lead Accessibility Architect, Nelnet

Marc Thorson is, as his teammates like to say, Nelnet’s Accessibility O.G. He’s not sure whether O.G.” means “original gangster” or “old guy”, but both are relatively accurate, so he runs with it. With nearly 20 years of experience as a web developer and architect and a lifetime of experience using assistive technology (Marc was born with SMA.), he loves sharing his passion for accessibility and creating delightful user experiences everyone can enjoy. In 2011, Marc was awarded South Dakota’s Outstanding Employee with a Disability, but he hasn’t been given the same award since, so I guess he’s been slacking off!
