When you ask 11-year-old Willie Rates about life with Asperger's he seems comfortable with his place in the world, both figuratively and literally. "Well, you're indeed not usual, which I'm perfectly ok with. It's like I'm Portland unusual, or Los Angeles unusual." A lover of ancient Egypt & Rome, dinosaurs, and Playmobil figures, Willie will tell you that first and foremost he is a filmmaker, with exactly 123 movies to his credit. He lives in Portland, Oregon with his Mother Tobi, Father Dale, and his 7-year-old brother Jacob, who is also on the Autism spectrum. First tested for Autism at age 4, Willie's path to a diagnosis hasn't been a straightforward one, "First we were told, we don't what, but there is something going on there," say Dale. "And that turned into Autism and that sort of started becoming Asperger\'s and then it became...who knows he might just be a really unique guy." It was more than two years ago that Willie first donned his now trademark Nemes, a striped headcloth worn by pharaohs in ancient Egypt. The remnants of a Halloween costume, it is a visual reminder of his obsession with Ancient Egypt.
