My name is Dani Algaze and I am a current junior at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, studying Art and Design. I’m a Long Island girl and basically grew up in the fabulous Manhattan, New York. Ever since I was a little girl I always loved designing and art, my mother being an Interior Designer I always saw all different fabrics and materials sprawled around my house. So when I decided to go to school for art and design there was a lot of encouragement on the parent side of the decision. Anyone who knows me knows that I am a fun girl who loves fashion, style, designing, and art and is always down to go shopping or talk about shopping at all times. I am really into photography and anything design. I never leave my apartment without my camera or sketchbook because I never know when I need to capture something. Coming into college it was a little nerve racking, but being here three years I call Ann Arbor my home. My life in Michigan is aMAIZEing and Ann Arbor is the perfect college town. There is so much Wolverine spirit in the air and I always love that feeling every time I walk into the Big House. Coming in as a freshman I wanted to have the best and most creative dorm room. My mom and I fabulously designed it and ever since then both of my apartments in the past two years have been even more glamorous and fantastic. Next semester I am off to Prague, Czech Republic where I will be attending an amazing art school and will be traveling all over Europe. I can’t wait to start blogging for Dormify and showing those Europeans what American style is all about. Follow me on twitter (@danialgaze) so you can check out my life in Ann Arbor and in my travels.
