I am an international author having written two books about autism and have contributed to many others. I am also an experienced speaker, having given over 100 talks in the past decade, some of which have been alongside leading professionals such as Professor Simon Baron-Cohen, Luke Jackson and Wenn Lawson. I started my education in a special unit, progressed to mainstream with support and then went on to gain a degree in physics at the University of Surrey. The degree involved a year working in the industry which helped enormously in gaining employment as I already had a year’s work experience. I have now been working full time for 5 years using my autistic skills of logical thinking, intense focus and creative problem solving as well as being a trustworthy and loyal team member.
