Today Kerry travels the country sharing his story and telling our society to define their lives and their dreams in the best way they can. Some of his highlights include publishing two best-selling books (Defining Autism From The Heart and Autism and Falling in Love) and working on the 2012 Motion Picture Joyful Noise. Kerry currently resides in New Jersey and works in New York as the Social Media Coordinator for Autism Speaks.introduction, giving people permission to laugh about family life with 2 out of 3 kids on the spectrum – our youngest, a profoundly challenged, non-verbal 18 year old and Michael, the AspieComic – and Andrew, our neurotypical one currently studying to be able to help all children with challenges.
