My brother and I have been acting since we were 6 and 7 years old. Both experiencing different levels of “success” on Broadway and on television, we have seen first hand the impact of the stories we’ve had the honor to tell. Here’s just a glimpse…

My brother, Micah, was born with Cerebral Palsy. His initial diagnosis had him forever confined to a chair, forever speechless and forever in need of round the clock assistance. Completely “unable” and totally dependent. But my family refused to believe that that would be his life. The dreams and hopes we had for him were big, and he’s exceeded every one. Through his work as “JJ” on ABC’s Speechless, we’ve been able to represent those so often forgotten and give a voice to the voiceless. The arts are representation – representation leads to acceptance, and acceptance to inclusion. That’s what the arts mean to us.
