Hello, I’m Samantha. I spent the past 6 years designing data for Graphiq, a knowledge graph provider with multiple data products, and then for Alexa. I am a designer with an engineering mindset and a degree in marketing analytics. The unique combo made it possible for me go deep in technology like a computer scientist, and also understand people like a social scientist1.
I see data being the superpower of our time, and I hope to grant it to more people with my work and my writing.

“Designers who can go deep in technology like a computer scientist, and who can also understand people like a social scientist, are the designers who can think and create at the scale of millions of users. They are the ones who can manage the shifting standards and technologies that seemingly change every week. They are the ones the world needs right now.”
