How it all started

Ai-Media’s origins go back to its two co-founders – Alex Jones and Tony Abrahams. 

Alex was born deaf, and grew up not having the chance to enjoy the same access as his hearing friends. He became passionate about accessibility.

Later in life, Alex met Tony, another keen advocate for people with disability. Tony, having returned from a Rhodes Scholarship at Oxford, was looking to make a meaningful impact on the world. 

Both sought to end the experience of social, educational and vocational exclusion faced by people with disability. This materialised in the creation of Ai-Media.
