I’m John Counsel, a semi-retired marketing consultant (a true offline pro), author and academic.
I was diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome at age 57 on Christmas Eve, 2002. It turned my life around… the best Christmas present I’ve ever received. :D
I'm the Aspie son of an Aspie mother, the father of five adult Aspie children, grandfather of fourteen grandchildren, most of whom are Aspies, too — did anyone ever tell you that you 'catch' Autism from one or both of your biological parents, NOT from vaccines or viruses? — and great-grandfather of one exquisite little boy (so far).
I married the love of my life in April, 1968.
I'm relentlessly happy, positive and creative.
