Dr. Hoby Wedler is the co-founder of Senspoint, which has a sister brand called Tucker Branding, and it is a full-spectrum design company with a distinct focus on telling stories to create truly memorable experiences using all five senses.

Dr. Wedler has been completely blind since birth. He is a scientist, a food and beverage expert, and a passionate explorer of anything sensory. Dr. Wedler earned his Ph.D. in Computational Organic Chemistry from the University of California, Davis. 

He also founded Accessible Science, a nonprofit organization that held annual chemistry camps for blind or visually impaired students. Dr. Wedler began opening doors to the world of wine aromas by holding truly blind wine tastings in Francis Ford Coppola’s wineries, and he's conducted these all over the globe. 

Dr. Wedler was recognized by President Barack Obama in 2012 when he was named a Champion of Change.

In this episode…

We make a ton of excuses for not doing the best we can, but when you listen to Dr. Hoby Wedler’s story, you will realize that there really should be no room for excuses. Not one. Dr. Wedler is the perfect example of someone who didn’t accept or make excuses. He set the bar high for himself and defied anyone who tried to dictate what he could and couldn’t do. So not only did he major in Chemistry even when people weren’t very encouraging about it, but he actually went ahead and earned a Ph.D. in Computational Chemistry. 

According to Dr. Wedler, the secret is to expect the world of yourself and to never let anyone pull you down or box you in. Dr. Wedler exemplifies this belief and approach to life, and he says that his motto is to always challenge yourself to do something that you either dread doing or think you can’t do, and just take baby steps and you’ll get there.

Tune in to this episode of Inspired Insider Podcast with Dr. Jeremy Weisz as he talks with Senspoint co-founder, Dr. Hoby Wedler, about his inspiring story and why he believes that making excuses can pull you back instead of pushing you up. Dr. Wedler also shares some of the remarkable things that Senspoint has worked on, what it was like for the attendees of his blind wine tasting in the Francis Ford Coppola wineries, and how his parents helped him understand the value of setting the bar high.
