Translating life's stories through video & photography that speak more than words ever could.

Hey, I'm Martin Tatar. I'm an Experience Designer, Video Creator and Photographer. I consider myself a global citizen who has studied, interacted, and worked with people from various cultures throughout the world.

Growing up in an international environment enabled me to see the world from a different perspective: the perspective of new emerging creative ideas and their use of technology. Consequently, I have become interested in information technology and its interconnectedness with people, communities, and real world scenarios. Through my travels I have noticed the opportunity of technology improving people's lives. This motivated me to educate people about possible ways to use technology in making their lives "simpler".

Through my work I try to share my unique experiences & open people's eyes to other cultures and ways of live. I also like to design travel experiences for other people so they get to experience this beautiful world first hand- reach out if you are interested!
