Cartography | Data Viz | Web Development | Storytelling


      I'm Sam Rabiyah, an NYC-based mapmaker and web developer who builds tools for movement-based organizers. I'm a strong believer that justice, advocacy, and storytelling should inform technology, and not the other way around. I work with web mapping, information design, oral history, and data journalism to make complex stories and data more actionable, and I am dedicated to bringing a critical perspective into the world of technology.
