I was born and raised in Hempstead, New York, and I currently attend The City College of New York where I major in Art. I aspire to become an animator or illustrator for storyboarding television shows, movies, and commercials. I admire how a person’s creations, such as those of Walt Disney, can create an impact in people’s lives and perhaps brighten their day. Knowing that my cartoon short put a smile on someone’s face would mean the world to me. I would love to make a career out of something into which I put so much passion and effort.
