About_Me_5.jpg

Hello.

Nice to meet you!

I'm Vidia, a product designer at Wunderman Thompson, a WPP's group agency, where I've been helping some big brands such as Volkswagen, Shell, Samsung, Bose, Smirnoff, and Microsoft to enhance their customer experience.

Currently living in New York City, I explore the area between design and technology. I studied Interactive Telecommunications Program (ITP) at New York University. I've spent 4.5+ years in the 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.

In my spare time, I like to travel, take pictures, write blogs, drink coffee, and explore new restaurants in NYC. I'm working to achieve my 30 countries before 30 (9 more to go!), and actively exploring restaurants in NYC. I've been to 400 restaurants in the city within 3 years.

Take a look at my writings on Medium, and follow my food blog, Pumpkin Latte, for a weekly curated post of curated restaurants in NYC.
