First impressions can take only 6 seconds to make! But if you’re neurodivergent, those quick judgments about you can be misleading.

That’s where the Beyond 6 Seconds podcast comes in! Join me, Carolyn Kiel, as I talk with neurodivergent entrepreneurs, creators, advocates & more about their lives and identities. Their stories shatter misconceptions, break stigma and showcase the vibrance of neurodiversity.

Jeremy Andrew Davis is a screenwriter, film director, and consultant for disability representation in media. He describes himself as multi-disabled with several neurodivergencies as well as chronic illnesses. As a recognized name in disability, he became one of 12 LinkedIn Top Voices of Disability Advocacy of 2022. Jeremy is also a social media influencer with more than 100 million video views across his career, including a TikTok channel that grew to almost 300,000 followers after only six months.

During this episode, you will hear Jeremy talk about:

  • How he discovered his neurodivergencies later in life
  • The types of stories he has been telling through his filmmaking, starting from a young age
  • His processes for writing characters – and how he writes diverse casts of characters outside of his own identities and lived experiences
  • What’s required to make media that’s authentically representative of people with disabilities (it’s more than just hiring a disability consultant!)
  • His thoughts on the representation of autistic people on TV, like Love on the Spectrum and Extraordinary Attorney Woo – and what media he feels is getting autistic representation right
  • What led him to start his TikTok account, and how the content he creates there is different from his other writing and filmmaking

Find out more about Jeremy and his work on his website and TikTok.
