I HAVE REARRANGED MY PROFILE. THIS IS SO THE IMPORTANT THINGS ARE FIRST. PLEASE READ THIS SECTION AND THE DO NOT SEND SECTION.
PLEASE NOTE: I am an actress. Sometimes I get a gig short notice. I try really hard to keep up with swaps prior to heading to the gig. Depending on the situation I am not afforded the time to be online for big chunks of time, and can come on for brief moments. So coorispondance
PLEASE DO NOT SEND ME PACKAGES WHERE EVERY SEAM IS TAPED SHUT. THESE ARE VERY DIFFICULT FOR ME TO OPEN AND CAUSE ME PANIC, AS I HAVE BROKE, CUT AND TORE THINGS TRYING TO GET INTO ENVELOPES. I UNDERSTAND IT IS REINFORCEMENT BUT THERE HAS TO BE ANOTHER WAY.
PLEASE DO NOT SEND ME:
Anything musty or smoky smelling - it kills my allergies.
AUTISM SPEAKS anything - puzzle pieces, blue pieces especially. This organization is not supportive of actually autistic people. I don’t agree with their philosophy, nor do they speak for me. (Advocating moment)
Crafty bits: Fabric scraps, foam, felt, Scrapbook type things, ribbon, yarn, pipe cleaners, beads that aren’t seed beads...these things end up in the garbage. Please pass them on to someone who will utilize them.
Unless I specifically sign up for a swap with any of these things. I do not want them and they will most likely end up in the trash. So please save them for someone else. Thank you.
Hello, please take time to read my whole profile. I hope you can learn some fun things about me and autism at the same time!
I am EVAN (I am a girl). I live in Los Angeles with “T” my husband, Lumos (my chihuahua service dog) and my lemon tree (Remus). I am an AUTISTIC writer, advocate and actress. My Favorite colors are Pale Pink (Nana), Pale Blue (Wendy) and Olive green (Peter).
Special Interests are something autistic people have/do to help them focus their lives. This is not to be confused with hobbies. The difference between Special Interests and Hobbies is when life gets to hectic/stressful I can stop a hobby. Special Interests on the other hand help me cope with the changes, hectic-ness and stresses of life. Usually if I am focused on a special interest I am happy and content. And they do change once in awhile, but the ones I am listing have been constant for most of my adult life.
My special interests are:
ACTING/MAKING MOVIES: I love the whole process of making movies, but my favorite part is acting. Because it lets me be other “normal” people with fascinating lives and stories to tell. Also I love being behind the scenes, script writing, cameras, all of it. So I moved to LA to be part of that world. Some of my favorite movies are: Rudy, Fantastic Beasts, Marie Antoinette (Sofia Copella one), Rise of the Guardians, Little Prince (on Netflix), Treasure Planet, Tomorrowland,
PETER PAN: The book, the play, movies (live action-2003, Hook, Disney), tv series...you name it, I love it. All things Peter, England/British things, Lost boys, Thimbles, Acorns, Pirates, Fairies (I really like fairies like Maleficent, woodland sprites and those in the artwork of Amy Brown). I LOVE everything about it, and have an ever growing collection.
ADVENTURE!! Anything that inspires Magic, Hope and a sense of Adventure. This is why Disney is an important part of my life. Other things that fall under this category are - Star Wars, Doctor Who, Peter Pan, Firefly, Tomorrowland (movie and Park), Stars/Constellation, NASA (Space Exploration), Planets, Galaxies. I find new things all the time, and have been told I have a childlike wonder about life.
MY CULTURE: I am Native Alaskan. I love everything about my culture. My grandfather was my chief, and taught me a lot about being proud of where I come from. I am attempting to learn our language which only about 500 ppl speak right now. I also enjoy making native bead work. It is relaxing to me. I am working on making a pair of beaded Mickey Mouse ears right now. ☦️
SwapBot is one of my favorite hobbies. I have had some bumps along the way. But I try really hard to enjoy every moment of it.
