My whole life I wanted cats but could never have any due to a parent’s allergies. Fortunately, New York City is full of cat lovers, and growing up in Manhattan, I was able to make cats a part of my life by cat-sitting for friends. I have seen friends’ cats grow from kittenhood to old age. Besides cat sitting for friends, I’ve been a dog walker and volunteered at animal rescue organizations, including a cat cafe where I socialized kittens for adoption. I’ve gotten to know cats with a variety of personalities, abilities, and ages, and am continuing to learn about cat behavior. I respect each cat’s way of communicating, and let them come to me on their terms.
I’m a native New Yorker. I studied film at Hunter College and am pursuing a career in animation.
