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!

You'll find me mostly writing CSS and Javascript. I avoid server-side work when it's not necessary, but still very much like it! Here's a project, Dropchop, that I've been working on recently. It's a GIS editor completely in the browser.

Say hello
