About Me

#ActuallyAutistic#disabled#InvisibleDisability

I focus on learning skills rather than gaining pedigree, especially because pedigree isn't typically an accommodating process. This means I've done bootcamps, certifications (App Academy, Outco, Triplebyte), apprenticeships (LinkedIn), and so many hackathons (neuroscience, cyptocurrency, angelhack, Noisebridge's Stupid Stuff No One Needs And Terrible Ideas Hackathon)

Ideal Workplace Values

Long-term vision without sacrificing short term needs. Understands that systemic problems require systemic solutions. Understands that change can happen over any time-scale. Values a resilient economy over a hypergrowth economy.


My Badges

Skills and Strengths

My Neuro-exceptional talent

I'm good at recognizing patterns. I can work for long periods with no breaks to meet deadlines (like at hackathons), provided I have necessary accommodations and compensation. I often come up with novel ideas that others don't think of. I pick up technical skills much faster than others. I remember details others seem to forget.

Environments I'm comfortable with

Driving a vehicle
Working with food
Interaction with the public
Loud noises
Standing for long periods
Variable temperatures
Uniforms (hard hat, hair net, etc.)
Working with animals
Heavy lifting
Bright or blinking lights
Outdoors or places with strong smells

I struggle with open office plans, and things become much much harder when I'm tired. Often times working fewer, more focused hours with more rest brings out my best skills, so forcing me to work 40 hours a week may make an employer think I'm unqualified because I cannot function.
