Sam has had an interdisciplinary career. She worked in high end residential design in San Francisco, taking the lead on both historic remodels and modern ground-up residences. She has also maintained an active art and design practice. Highlights include a residency as an Affiliate Artist at Headlands Center for the Arts, managing the 3D-printing lab at Southern California Institute of Architecture (SCI-Arc), and co-founding a furniture studio, Extra Special.
