FAVORITE QUOTE

"Great minds don't always think alike." — Steve Silberman.

WHY THIS WORK IS IMPORTANT TO ME
I grew up frequently feeling that my brain was wrong; once someone looked me in the eye and said they understood my life because they lived it too, everything changed. I want to do everything I can to give that intense, wonderful moment of relief, pride, empathy, and joy to as many individuals as I possibly can.

FAVORITE PART OF MY JOB
Being a part of that Howie Mandel moment; when another person looks them in the eye with compassion and excitement and says, 'Me too.'
