My name is Daniel Scarpati, and I'm a third-year university scholar at Macaulay Honors College at Brooklyn College. I'm double majoring in Film Production and Television/Radio, with minor interests in Digital Art Design and Computer Science.
The Utopia of Daniel is the culmination of all of the things I enjoy in life. From cars and college to movies and video games, I blog about it all! I hope you enjoy your visit, and please RECOMMEND this blog to your friends if you do. Thank you.
