Bio

Hey! I am a Dominican-Colombian sophomore who is from the Bronx but currently residing in Brooklyn, in my first time at City Tech. I have had a passion for working in the arts and am happy to learn and try different aspects of creativity. In my free time, I love to document my surroundings through photography/videography and practice editing as well as gaming. I also have a great love for animals and their nature inspires me.

Two artists that I have previously studied and felt great interest in their works were Ryoji Ikeda and Takashi Murakami, how about you?
