Who runs this thing?

Hello! I’m Toby, and was first identified as autistic at age 30. Though I had suspicions off and on for several years, I dismissed them every time until my therapist finally (and unexpectedly) confirmed it. Since then I’ve developed a passion for helping others understand the experiences and culture of autistic people as well as spreading disability acceptance.

I have two kids, two cats, a spouse, and a persistently cluttered house full of half-finished books.
