Jack Gunthridge is a writer, director, producer, editor, and actor that started out making movies before switching to writing books.
He has a high functioning form of autism known as Asperger's Syndrome. He doesn't really see this as a disability since other people throughout history like Isaac Newton, Michelangelo, Mark Twain, Beethoven, Jane Austen, Thomas Jefferson, and Albert Einstein are believed to have had the same form of autism.
If anything, Jack feels like his autism helps him to create his works with a distinctive feel. He isn't afraid to try new things or to present new ideas in the form of art.
