My name is Andrew Paladino, but anyone that knows me calls me “Dino”. I was born in 1991 and have lived in Staten Island, NY for my whole life, with the exception of spending 2 years at Hofstra University in Long Island. I currently live at home and attend Hunter College in Manhattan. I am studying philosophy. I sing and play guitar for the band Curious Volume. I live to write music. I am also a diehard New York Mets fan. My nationality is 75% Italian and 25% Syrian.
