Castro Desroches _ About


Castro Desroches was born and raised in New York. Most first-generation Haitians born in the U.S. traditionally have parents who inflict a great deal of pain upon them in molding them into doctors, lawyers or anything else they perceive as practical.

Thankfully, Castro’s parents didn’t take that path, and by chance he still turned out great.

He attended school at the City College of New York for both his undergraduate degree in Design and Multimedia and his graduate degree in Branding and Integrated Communications.
