Hi, I'm Sam. Here I am on a mountain.

mapsam on a mountain

I'm a web developer and designer, a geographer with a map problem, and an avid open source contributor. I'm a 2015 Fellow with Code for America and the lead designer & co-founder of Situated Laboratories.

I hack with the great people of CUGOS and am also an editor of the Atlas of Design. Most of the work I do is on Github. In fact, this website is completely hosted on Github pages!

I try my best to make sure every bit of code I write is concise and easy to understand. You'll likely find me writing small, direct CSS and avoiding frameworks like the plague. I keep it simple because who has time for bloat?
