About

Hello! I'm Sam, a designer hailing from the UK.

Currently, I’m in Lusaka, Zambia – finding ways to create life-enhancing education programmes for the developing world. Before Zambia, I spent 6 weeks in Vientiane, Laos, learning from the Applied Cognitive Science team and setting up a reading program in schools.

Before that, I was based in San Francisco, interning at NewDealDesign and co-conspiring at the Red Victorian.

Before that, I studied Graphic Design at Falmouth University, in the UK.

Catch me on a day off, and I'm hopefully somewhere on water or in the mountains – kayaking, surfing, climbing, hiking, sleeping outside etc.
