Hi, my name is Zayd Sanders. I was born and raised in the Bronx New York. I am majoring in communication design and I am in the game design/animation module. I attended the Bronx High School for the Visual Arts where I did graphic design. It wasn’t until my junior year when I had 2D/3D animation classes and right then and there I knew this is what I wanted to do. Growing up I’ve always played video games and watched tv. My hands were glued to the controllers and keyboards. At that time I thought it wasn’t possible to become a game designer or animator. When I graduated from high school I started playing the guitar. My influences are mainly hard rock and metal. This has been a huge hobby of mine and I pretty much practice everyday. I plan on starting or joining a band. Recently I just thought of doing soundtracks for video games, tv shows, movies. Some of my main influences include Hans Zimmer and Zack Hemsey.
