What started as a childhood hobby, I am now making a career out of, selling animatronics to people across the country. At a young age, I was taught how to work with tools, but more importantly I was taught the value of patience and community.
At age 7, I began creating animatronic Halloween displays, which attracted thousands of visitors each year. My work has been featured on CBS Boston, Fox Boston 25, The Boston Globe, NBC Boston, The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, Kiss 108 and other news sources. In October 2017, I was recognized by the Boston Celtics with the "Heroes Among Us" award for community fundraising that accompanied the Halloween display.
From 2014-2017, the Halloween display ran a month-long community fundraising event to benefit Boston Children’s Hospital. Thanks to the generous donations of the community "Halloween Helping Kids" raised nearly $40,000 to support mental health research and suicide prevention. During October 2020, I organized a fundraiser to benefit the Boston Resiliency Fund to support Covid-19 relief efforts, raising over $650 for the city of Boston.
