Sam Raby
Cartography | Data Viz | Storytelling | Advocacy


      I'm Sam Raby, a Brooklyn-based freelance mapmaker and recent Wesleyan graduate with over three years experience designing online data mapping applications for social change. With a background in math and data analysis, I'm a strong believer that justice, advocacy, and storytelling should inform technology, and not the other way around. Through working with GIS mapping, data journalism, and interactive media development, I am dedicated to bringing a critical perspective into the world of data and technology.
