Nils Skudra is a gifted writer, artist, pianist, and stage actor. Nils is also an extraordinarily creative individual who lives with Asperger syndrome.
After graduating from UC Berkeley with a degree in history, his family relocated from California to central North Carolina for him to study the Civil War, which is his biggest passion.
In May 2018, he graduated with a Master’s in history from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro.
Some of Nils’s income comes from writing articles for various publications like “The Art of Autism” website and Pittverse Magazine in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. In July 2018, he has an upcoming article in O’Henry Magazine about his service dog, Jackson.
“Writing has enabled me, of course, to bring a bit of income into my life and working positively affects my self-esteem,” he says.
Nils is actively seeking full-time employment in a museum as a research historian, archivist or curator.
