I’m Christian and I’ve been Deaf since I was about one year old. This was due to multiple health issues and some powerful antibiotics. My parents decided to expose me to sign language right then. Ever since, it has been my first language. I attended the Michigan School for the Deaf for 12 years before enrolling at Rochester Institute of Technology in 2009. I received my Bachelor’s degree in Business. I enjoy being involved in the Deaf community in different aspects. This includes teaching different subjects to different age groups and serving as a consultant to theaters for shadow interpreting.
