About Me

#actuallyautistic

I have half of a studio art degree, I stopped partially because of unmet needs/mental health struggles. Which lead me to working for myself and helping with a good friends start up. Now that I am I have necessary needs met I look forward to going back to school for graphic design once I gain residency in California. I find it important to recognize that my disabilities or whatever you want to call them are only labeled as such because I deviate from what capitalism views as profitable. I don’t say that to bash capitalism, in fact excluding the fact that I am viewed as faulty, I have great appreciation for fierce competition capitalism holds. My favorite part of capitalism is marketing and branding, I find it fascinating the aural quality that a brand holds. Wether personal or professional marketing done right is nonverbal communication, doesn’t get more autistic then that.

Ideal Workplace Values

Aware that my “differences” hold important value, interested in the perspective my unique mind brings to the table as opposed to a token autistic or simply a diversity hire.


Skills and Strengths

My Neuro-exceptional talent

My brain is constantly taking in data and categorizing this produces a unique map where if ive interacted with something (object, piece of information) it is in there and i have a physical memory. Over the years I have learned to understand peoples expectations through micro expressions and tone shifts which makes me very predictive to needs, often before they are even aware. My ears pick up on everything which can have its shortcomings related to sensory input but its very useful in delivering desires.
