My name is Dilson Hernandez and I am a senior (Class of 2015) here at the University at Albany. I was born in the Washington Heights area of Upper Manhattan to Dominican immigrants. My family moved to the Bronx when I was 8 years old. I started playing guitar when I was freshman at All Hallows High School, which is what started my profound love of the arts. Since then I have written songs, shorts stories, short films, and poems. Musically I have learned piano, harmonica, made instrumentals for songs, and sing (just a tad). Through my various forms of artistic expression I hope to spread my artwork to world, after I graduate, as a freelance musician/writer.
