So as it turns out, Titus and I have like thousands of contacts in common. Like me, he was diagnosed with ADHD later in life, after he was named to the Wired 100 list in 2010.. his resume is super extensive & impressive! We talk today about how he first discovered that he had ADHD & Dyslexia, and what he’s implemented that is making his super powers even stronger! (Oh and my voice is better now by the way- thanks for suffering though my rasp the last couple of weeks). Enjoy!
