Frazier has a commitment to MindsEye’s core values and mission that goes beyond most. Frazier’s early years were shaped by the interactions and connection with his grandmother Essie, who was blind due to diabetic retinopathy and glaucoma and lived with his family until her passing when Frazier was ten. It was this history and his love of broadcasting that led him to MindsEye and on the path of creating more accessibility and connections for everyone living with visual-impairments in the community.

Frazier stated, “From my time starting here, MindsEye was simply a radio reading service, and throughout my time at MindsEye, we’ve grown to provide three full programs with Audio Description and Beepball in additional to Broadcasting. I’m honored and excited to lead this organization, continuing our mission to translate vision into audio, and see where we can further grow to benefit those in are community who live with visual-impairments.”

Frazier now lives is Mascoutah, Illinois with his wife and two kids who can often be found at MindsEye events, helping with registration at the annual Soiree Pour la Vue, flipping bases for Beepball, selling raffle tickets, and supporting the organization whenever possible.  

MindsEye translates vision into audio and provides radio readings of local and national print media to the Greater Saint Louis Area in addition to serving the community through its Audio Description Program and Beepball.
