About me

Hi there! My name is Sam, have you ever heard the expression "I'd rather watch paint dry?" That was my life for the past decade, and while I was passionate about creating a great user experience, there was something missing. Throughout my journey in becoming a software engineer, I fell in love with the collaborate experience in developing applications. I am excited to combine those passions with a group of empathetic and inclusive developers in a collaborative effort to continually produce the best possible user experience.
