Dorca Musseb

Freelancer

Perth Amboy, NJ, USA
Being a designer & animator is my passion. I design the day away wielding my mighty tablet pen and won't rest until I've run out of my beloved Bustelo coffee (my sole core fuel source and secret behind all my Designimation powers... shhhhhh). I love what I do for a living and I’m fortunate enough to have collaborated in really cool projects with some amazingly talented people along the way.

Currently based as a designer/animator in New Yawk City, I was born & raised in Puerto Rico and in 1992 moved to the USA. Barely able to speak a lick of English then; today, I'm very proud to say I finally know that the emphasis on the word focus is on the first syllable and the last part of that word isn’t pronounced “use”.

Many years and many odd jobs later, my dreams came true when I graduated in 2006 with my BFA from the School of Visual Arts. **Cue in triumphant trumpet music.**

I live with my fiancé Wilfredo Rodriguez, Jr. and our cute little Frenchton, Olivia Blue Cheese somewhere in Northern New Jersey and I commute a lot.
