Life on The Spectrum

Patterns exist in all things.. even in chaos there is order..


My Information Technology Background

Information Technology is my actual primary profession. I’ve been in it for 16+ years, now. I’ve worked for the video gaming industry, healthcare industry, and finance industry. Within those industries have been distribution supply chain and banking. I’ve worked for global companies such as Electronic Arts (EA Games), UPS, and AmerisourceBergen. My profession has not been without some challenges—thanks to autism—but, I have learned how to adapt and excel despite such challenges. If I can do it.. anyone can do it.
