I am known around the world as the guy who can talk backwards by way of my YouTube Channel. I recently completed a short documentary on my life called "Almost Normal" which shows how my mind works with sound and picture. It won an award at The Charlotte Film Festival as well as honorable mention.

Ideal Workplace Values

I am looking for a work environment that is inclusive and collaborative as well as understanding of someone who is high functioning on the Aspergers Spectrum.

Skills and Strengths

My Neuro-exceptional talent

I am a visual thinker and very auditory and musical. This gives me a very big advantage in the field of camera operating and especially editing. I am very fast and accurate with audio editing because of the way my mind processes sound.
