About Ato Essandoh:
Ato Essandoh is an American television and film actor.
I was in chemical engineering at Cornell University. My girlfriend at the time dared me to do a play. I knew there was something I wanted, not necessarily engineering.
Quentin Tarantino and Sam Jackson are the reasons I'm an actor.
What's nice about having an engineering degree is everybody thinks you are smart.
My parents are from Ghana. Until I was 17, I thought you had to go to college. I had no idea. I didn't know it was not an option.
Another benefit of going to Cornell is that 90 percent of your friends are doctors.
