I am an accomplished author, speaker and self-advocate on disability inclusion. I grew up with autism and created many resources about social inclusion that I call " Tips4inclusion". I published a children's guide called " How to be a Good Influence to People with Disabilities" and am the author of a children's book titled " Timmy's Story: A Story About Autism and Friendship", available on Amazon. I have been on the front page of the newspaper three times and featured in media around the world. I have created and presented to schools and major conferences. I also create animated educational videos about disability inclusion.
Presentations, webinars, small group lesson and school asssemblies.
Received a Commendation from the NJ State Senate and Assembly for my work. I have also spoken at the NJ Department of Education. In addition, I was the opening speaker at the Monmouth County Division of Mental Health Conference and the Plenary Speaker for the NJ Association of Community Providers. In September 2021, I added Keynote speaking to my resume and staff development training.
I graduated Allentown High School 2018 and attended the Monmouth County Career Center and received a certificate in Computer in Business Applications and was student of the year. I have also taken graphic design classes at Mercer Community College. As a young adult with autism I have a unique way of being able to educate and inspire change from my experiences growing up.
I am a young adult with autism who is an author, speaker, self-advocate and educator of disability inclusion. I created my own website and a YouTube Channel with original resources to teach about disabilities and inclusion. I volunteer at Millstone Primary School helping teach social skills and social emotional learning. I love working with the kids and teaching them about acceptance, friendship and inclusion.
