Adel L. Morales is a former high school English teacher-by-day and a filmmaker-by-night, who quit his seventeen-year-career to pursue his passion for filmmaking. He began his studies at the NYU Grad School Film Program in the Fall of 2012. Bronx born and bred, Adel received his B.A. in English Literature from Pace University and his M.A. in English from Lehman College/CUNY.
