About me

I’m a sociable creative artist, skateboarder, explorer and people-watcher who wants to show the world that non-verbal teenagers with a learning disability can lead full, exciting lives.

Myth to bust: Just because I’m non-verbal, it doesn’t mean I don’t understand. Please talk to me age-appropriately!
