Winner of Dancing with the Stars and America’s Next Top Model, Nyle DiMarco, empowers audiences to believe they can do and be anything they want in life, no matter the obstacle. Following his early television success, he is now winning over audiences as an influential leader and ambassador for the Deaf community.
His debut book, "Deaf Utopia: A Memoir and a Love Letter to a Way of Life" (April 2022), recounts his upbringing and the positive impacts of being born into a fourth-generation Deaf family. He was an executive producer on Netflix's Oscar-nominated short documentary, "Audible" (2021) and produced the 2018 return to Broadway of "Children of a Lesser God," starring Joshua Jackson and Lauren Ridloff. DiMarco is an honorary spokesperson for Language Equality and Acquisition for Deaf Kids (LEAD-K) and founder of the Nyle DiMarco Foundation, which works to improve the lives of Deaf people around the world. He was also a creative collaborator on The ASL App, created by native Deaf signers to teach conversational American Sign Language.
DiMarco shares his barrier-breaking story as a Deaf man who has risen above stereotypes to take the world by storm. Believing that his deafness is "an asset rather than a limitation," he builds a bridge between the Deaf and hearing, and shows audiences that with a sense of community, commitment to your goals, and belief in yourself, you can accomplish anything.
