I am a proud 36-year-old minimally- and unreliably-speaking autistic writer, advocate, and friend living in San Diego, California. I am passionate about social justice, including sharing the voices of the nonspeaking world and advocating for our rights, dignity, and well-being! I am a member of the Spellers and Allies Advocacy Network, the board for Teva Community, and the advisory board for The Ohana Consortium. I also share perspectives of nonspeakers through my website (dannywithwords.com) and social media, including my Leo in Bloom project and The Ocean and Us podcast. I am also passionate about friendship, the ocean, cooking, and travel.
