Rudolph, a Shining Example of Neurodiversity Growing up, one of my favourite childhood Christmas movies was Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer (Larry Roemer, 1964).

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.

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.
