I was diagnosed with Asperger's when I was 10 years old and look upon my Asperger's as something positive and something that I feel lucky to have been able to manage over the years. I have been interviewed a number of times on TV and Radio and have written a number of articles for the Autism Parenting and SEN Magazines. I now present talks on what it is like to live, work and go to school with Asperger's and in 2019 I published my first book called "That's Not Right! My Life Living with Asperger's. I would always be happy to share my experiences.
I have presented many different talk all about Asperger's to companies, law firms, NHS Trusts, universities and schools to raise awareness and understanding for the condition.
Some of the places I have presented to:
Nottingham Trent Uni
My talks last for around 40 minutes with time for Q&A after. So, each session is around 1 hour long. However, this can be adapted if required. I also have a few other talks. If you would like me to present a talk for you then please get in contact with me.

Autism & Football Campaign
I have started an Autism & Football Campaign to enhance the experience of Autistic fans at football matches. I have worked with clubs such as Arsenal, Aston Villa & Swansea City and have spoken to many other clubs. I wrote an article on this in the SEN magazine, had an interview by ITV Central and a video produced by the BBC.

On the 4th April 2016 I was interviewed live on Big News at Big Centre TV about Autism. I was interviewed not only on what Autism means for me but also what it means for other people and the challenges that we “Aspies” face. Here is the link to my interview: Click Here
