In January 2016, Ran spent his 21st Birthday in a Reno area ICU after a snow boarding accident at the Northstar Ski Resort, Tahoe where he sustained a C8 Asia A SCI.
Ran then spent six weeks recovering at the Santa Clara Valley Medical Center's SCI Rehab Center before returning home. Within 10 weeks of his injury, Ran was driving again. He continued his recovery and returned to UC San Diego to complete his B.S. degree in Computer Science. He graduated in 2017 and took up a full-time position at Google as a Software Engineer working on virtual reality. How cool is that!
