This is Hafi

Hello! My name is Hafiyyandi, or Hafi for short. I'm a recent graduate 🎓from NYU Tisch's Interactive Telecommunications Program (ITP).

I lived in Indonesia & Singapore before moving to NYC, and in my past life, I was an art director & producer for a social ad agency.


Now, as a creative technologist & coder, I use technology as a means for creative expressions 🦄 & self-healing 🌞
