About Me


I am a huge live music lover. I enjoy spending time creating and caring for complex habitats for my various fish and amphibians. As a late-diagnosed autistic, I am leaning heavily into my natural analytical skills to bridge the gap between an employment history that is primarily customer service (masking).

Ideal Workplace Values

Accepting differences, willing to listen to one another with understanding being the primary goal, open to follow-up questions, clear and direct instructions and guidance, flexible social requirements that allow me to make my own decisions on comfort level
