I was diagnosed as autistic on my 54th birthday. I describe myself as a Creative Technologist. No job description I have ever seen really captures what I have to offer. I'm an avid (some would say obsessive) runner. I like bears. I wonder sometimes about the pros and cons of self-identifying as ursine, but worry that I would end up in a zoo, or hunted.

Writing About Talking About Communicating When Autistic

I think that everyone who is autistic has wanted at times to get a group of neurotypical people to listen while you explain to them what being autistic is really like. From that perspective, being able to give a TedX talk was a bit of a fantasy come to life.
