Rudolph, a Shining Example of Neurodiversity Growing up, one of my favourite childhood Christmas movies was Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer (Larry Roemer, 1964). I loved it so much I bought the box set in my early 20’s. I couldn’t identify why I was drawn to this movie until I was diagnosed with ADHD Inattentive […]
Fresh off my national Startup Canada Award Fresh off my national Startup Canada Award, November turned out to be one of my busiest months. Two speaking engagements and a handful of interview requests kept me busier than usual. December won’t let up and I wouldn’t have it any other way. Last week […]
Startup Canada Awards
I raised enough money through my GoFundMe profile to attend the Startup Canada Awards on October 19th, 2017 in Ottawa, Ontario. I was nominated for the National Startup Canada Resilient Entrepreneur Award. Awarded to an entrepreneur with a visible or non-visible disability who has impacted Canadian entrepreneurship through exemplary activities and leadership of their companies.
Thank you to everyone who generously donated money, I hope it was worth the investment. I am extremely fortunate to have such amazing people around me who believe in who I am and what I offer the world.
And, the winner is…

My friend, Gene Fowler of Loogaroo Animation and Games once said:
“Rock what you do and people will find you!“
This quote stuck with me and I am living proof that Gene is right. Frustrated with the lack of local support I had to find innovative ways to reach a broader audience. In the last year, my profile has started to turn heads and garner positive attention internationally.
I always try to think of low risk, maximum reward longshots. Why not? With little to lose and so much to gain, I have been able to achieve the unimaginable. I rock what I do and as a result, people find me.
