To those of us working to develop the Love & Autism, the ‘&’ was chosen for a very specific purpose. Actually, this character is likely the most important piece in our logo. Today, the ampersand is commonly used to suggest a partnership or collaboration. A union, if you will. When autism is discussed in the media and even in our own community, the language used can be discriminatory. When success stories of autism are detailed, it seems that more often than not, autism is represented as something to “overcome” or “recover from.” It’s as if a person can’t achieve the thing associated with quality of life & have autism. The common story: “Despite having autism, such and such was able to do something remarkable” needs to be advanced. I believe the ampersand is just the symbol to do that! This is why at Love & Autism we celebrate the partnership between autism & quality of life.

Michael Ryan Andolsek, was born in Landstuhl, Germany on June 20, 1991 where he quickly developed a fixation with the fashion world that has lasted into adulthood with immense intensity. Undiagnosed until the age of 21, Michael claims that his diagnosis has only helped him, and does not necessarily wish he had been given it sooner. He continues to heavily focus on his strength in creating: Composing music, drawing, painting, designing interiors, and building the Andolsek Company. Mr. Andolsek will be featuring a live fashion show at #loveandautism2018 that you don't want to miss!
