Hello. My name is Sam.
I’m a creative and interactive problem-solver with over 13 years of professional in-house & remote experience. Innovative, hardworking, and talented are just a few of the words my colleagues have used to describe me. My expertise lies in UX strategy, UI development, creative consulting, interactive marketing, advertising research, and producing measurable results.More about meSee my work
I believe the best user experiences start with thorough planning. My background in advertising research and web analytics lends itself well to UX strategy. I pursue the latest trends and best practices to keep my concepts fresh.
I can develop responsive and reactive front-end interfaces with HTML5, CSS3, and jQuery and I have the back-end knowledge to efficiently integrate into existing data structures using PHP and SQL.
Along with my technical background, I excel at creative consulting and design. I've always loved modern, minimalist design aesthetics and have carried out that motif in digital, print, photoshoots, and video creative work throughout my career.

Sam brings a professional, no-nonsense attitude to her work while being one of the most laid-back and friendliest co-workers I’ve ever collaborated with. She has the amazing talent to foresee UX/UI issues before anyone else and offer realistic solutions to them. More importantly, her solutions are well thought out and researched – and work! An excellent all-around coder, she makes it all look very easy – be it a landing page, app, or a taking a full-blown e-commerce site from wireframe to a live functional site.
Sam is never shy to volunteer to help on special projects and always makes herself available to help when a problem arrises. She is never afraid to step up and learn something new and is constantly challenging herself – be it a special company project or her awesome freelancing skills. She is always the go-to person when a problem is stumping everyone else on the team. Her code is very clean and she takes pride in staying organized on a common process with her team. She is never too busy to take the time to explain and show how her code interacts and what makes things work. I would recommend her hands down to anyone looking for a rockstar UX/UI Developer. Professionals with her talent and drive do not come around often.Kent Campbell, Interactive Designer at Golfsmith International
Sam is one of the most talented creatives I know. Not only does she master UX/UI development, she also excels in creative strategy, marketing research, web design, and drawing/illustration. I’ve had the pleasure of working with and managing Sam for almost 3 years on Golfsmith International’s Creative Marketing team. Over those 3 years, I’ve learned that Sam can master any task you give her. If it’s something she doesn’t know already, she does the research to figure it out. This alone makes her valuable to any team or company. On top of that, she finds creative solutions to produce measurable results and goes above and beyond to make sure the work gets done in the most effective/efficient way possible. Any company would be lucky to have Sam on their team.Claire Linden, Associate Creative Director at Golfsmith International
