In 2009, Kerry also started KFM Making a Difference, a non-profit organization that gives scholarships for adults with autism to attend college.
Kerry became an advocate for the disability community after coming out about having autism for the first time while attending Seton Hall University as a freshman in 2007. Since than he has spoken to break down barriers of hate and intolerance towards those with special needs.
His consulting efforts have led him to work on the motion picture Joyful Noise starring Queen Latifah and Dolly Parton that made 30 million dollars worldwide! He now is gearing up for two indie films coming out in 2015 in Jane Wants a Boyfriend and Don’t Foil My Plans.
