Dustin Sweeney is our 22 year old Autistic son who surfs, runs, hikes mountains, and loves to attend Broadway musicals. Dustin follows big brother Dylan’s career in the United States Navy where Dylan is a Naval Flight Officer after his graduation from the United States Naval Academy in May of 2019.
Dustin has led us to many great people and places over the years, and creating an Interdependence Community is our family mission.
Michael Sweeney is an Self-Direction Autism Advocate, Interdependence Community Developer, Friend of Cornell Blockchain, and Lousy Surfer. As parents of an Autistic son, Mike and Katie Sweeney are very active in a number of Autism causes and charities including Endeavor 21+, Achilles International, CO/LAB Theater Group, Invictus Enterprises’ Bakery, SNACK, and Surfers Healing. The Sweeney's participated in the Simons Simplex Collection at Columbia University Medical Center, which is an Autism study funded by Jim Simons of Renaissance Technologies LLC.
None of this works without the support of my wife Katie Bilik Sweeney.
