About Me

Sam Slover Sam Slover in NYC

Currently working on NYU ITP, Learn It Live, and a few other fun projects too, I'm most passionate about creating new technologies and media that allow people to better learn about themselves and the world they live in, and hopefully make better decisions because of it.

I do this through data, design, and education, and my goal is that my work is globally useful. While I love to design and code, I believe these are ultimately just tools to create new platforms and tell stories that can engage and inform.

I love philosophy, soulful music, clean design, basketball, traveling, writing, skiing, art, cooking, and other things too. I have mixed feelings toward modernity, but that’s a long story.


My projects span across the digital and non-digital realms. I believe technology must be firmly grounded in the real world with real people. In addition to interactive digital applications, I've worked on social entrepreneur initiatives in Honduras and India, launched a seed capital program at a micro-finance firm in Bolivia, and generally try to volunteer my time for educational programs.

Featured Projects


I have a few ever-evolving beliefs that define my approach toward my work.


The world is awash with data. I seek to use data responsibly, both to inform my own projects and to give people new information that can improve their day-to-day decision-making and behaviors.


I believe in simple, minimal design that stays out of the user's way. Design must be more than how something looks visually; rather, it should be the entire experience one has with a product. It must be elegant.


I'm inspired by projects that introduce random delight and whimsy, at times causing participants to do a double take. I seek to introduce elements of surprise, whimsy, and the unexpected.


We’re living in the midst of a deeply transformative technological revolution, where the world is becoming rapidly connected and information is no longer centralized. I aim to design for this global community.
