Cartography | Data Viz | Storytelling | Advocacy


      I'm Sam Raby, a Brooklyn-based mapmaker and interactive media developer with five years experience designing web 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. I work with GIS mapping, information design, oral history, and data journalism to tell complex stories to large audiences, and I am dedicated to bringing a critical perspective into the world of data and technology.
