My name is David Arthur Smith. I am a 57 year old physically challenged man with Cerebral Palsy since birth. I am an Athetoid quadriplegic, not able to physically speak. I rely on an augmentative communication device to communicate and a power wheelchair to get around inside my house as well as outdoors. I am currently unemployed due to my physical disability.

I am currently living in their house, located in Berkeley Heights, New Jersey, which is currently in my name as the owner.
