Jay Alan Zimmerman: I am Jay Alan Zimmerman. My signing name looks like this: just use your pinky to draw a big “J” in the sky and give it some flair at the end. I am a writer and a composer who became Deaf, in part, because of my exposure on September 11, 2001 and that, of course, was a difficult transition, but becoming Deaf was the best thing that ever happened to me. It has really opened up my world. I write musicals and plays, and I incorporate the broader disability community, not just the Deaf and Hard of Hearing community.
