ABOUT ME

I'M SAYENA!

I’m an empathetic UX designer, a curious design researcher,

a passionate violinist, and a creative writer.

HCI+D is the intersection of my backgrounds in computer science and design. I initiated my work as a front-end developer, however, once I started working in an HCI lab, I realized the true power of an effective experience that is created for a well understood target audience. Since then, my goal has been to improve people’s lives by applying creative solutions and I’ve had the chance to do that as a product designer, UX engineer, and full-stack UX designer.

Other than being a UX unicorn, I enjoy writing short stories, hiking, watching anime, dancing, and reading books!

MY FAVORITE BOOKS
