Nice to meet you!
I'm Vidia, a maker, product designer, experience/interaction designer, and creative technologist. I learn, work, and play with technologies to create meaningful experiences to make people smile.
Currently living in New York City, I explore the area between design and technology. I studied Interactive Telecommunications Program (ITP) at New York University. Before moving my life to the Big Apple, I spent 4 years in design world with varied slightly in title; from Front-End Developer, to UX Researcher, to UX Designer - all these roles are focused on creating design solutions to engage people experiences.
I love photography as I love watching people and the world from a viewfinder. I enjoy observing people while sitting down at a park drinking my pumpkin spice latte. I'm always curious about how people sense and perceive the world around us, how people interact with the world, and behave the way people do. These days I take pleasure creating physical and digital products to make people happy.
