Hi, I’m Sam. I’m a Toronto-based strategist and writer working to create a connected world that puts people first.

I’ve worked at the intersections between culture, technology, and human rights for over a decade, with diverse organizations including Engineers Without Borders Canada, the Aga Khan Foundation, and the International Freedom of Expression eXchange.

I sporadically keep a blog, moonlight on projects that capture my curiosity, and tweet on weekdays.
