Vid is the founder and principal designer of Raatior Design. He is a web designer who understands the power of technology as a tool to level the global playing field for small organizations, the outliers, the voiceless, the self-starters, and those who wish to do good but can’t afford professional web designers. He approaches web design always with an eye to empowering the partners (aka clients) to effectively implement their goal to make this world a better place. He founded the successful Santa Cruz WordPress Meetup as a way to create a strong network of web designers and programmers to engage in other social enterprises.
Originally from a small remote island in the Pacific Island nation of Micronesia, Vid has a bachelors degree in communications from the University of Guam and a masters degree in school administration from the University of San Francisco. He moved to Hilo in 2012 where he is the Director of the Pacific Islander Student Center at the University of Hawai’i at Hilo. When he is not at UH Hilo, you can probably find him on any number of his personal initiatives to help his people in Northwest region of Chuuk State, FSM.
