Brian C.
Age: 26
Currently residing: Dallas Texas
LD: mild Autism, ADHD, Dyscalculia, Dysgraphia

I currently own my own business. I do errands, house sitting, pet sitting, chauffeuring and car detailing. 

When I was in school, I had a hard time fitting in. I knew I was not like the other kids. I was teased and made fun of often. I had a series of tests run on me and was diagnosed with a form of mild Autism, ADHD, Dyscalculia, and Dysgraphia.

In July of 2000, my family and I made the move from Washington D.C to Dallas, TX, so my sister and I could go to Shelton. I started my first year at Shelton in the 7th grade and I was a little intimidated. A new school with new kids, a new start. I made friends quickly and the teachers helped me learn subjects I always had trouble with in the past and I actually started to enjoy school. Over the years, I began having more success with math, my handwriting was improving.

I graduated Shelton in 2006 and went off to college, an new adventure. I found that college wasn't for me, but I knew I liked helping others. I started helping people that had too much on their plate to get everything done. I'd drive kids to and from their schools and their activities, run errand, house and pet sit, and more. At the age of 23, I started Brian's Errand Service.

I am now 26 years old and I have never been happier!
