ABOUT KEVIN CHAPMAN
Hi, I’m Kevin Chapman, a full-time YouTuber, author, podcaster, speaker and occasional teacher from Peterborough, UK. As part of my daily vlog I release new videos every day at 5pm UK time with topics including life as an autism family, conventions and geek culture, technology, education and tutorials and entrepreneurship.
When I left my full-time as a Computer Science teacher in July 2017, my partner, Anna, was trapped in our house by our son Andy, who is autistic and had refused to go to school for 18 months. Our daughters Lucy and Amy and our dog Dave hardly saw me because I was always working to try and solve all our problems! Today I’m a full-time content creator who’s always at home when my kids get home from school (all our kids!) and Anna has been able to return to university. This channel is the story of my family’s ongoing journey! Previously known as lollujo Vlogs.
