Hi, my name is Sam. I like to tell visual stories using data, graphics, and interactivity.
You can see some of my work below and if you want to get in touch, you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org—I'm almost always down for a chat. If you add me on Twitter, @samvickars, I'll probably follow you back.
I have a bachelor's degree from the University of Waterloo School of Architecture and a Master's of Science in Data Visualization from Parsons in NYC.
I’m also an eight-time local pub trivia champion, along with my twin brother; the current scoring champion in one of the lowest-division adult hockey leagues in the city; a relatively accomplished wassailer; and an early pioneer of the Circle Line Pub Crawl.
I'm currently employed at The DataFace and recently won a bronze at the 2019 Information is Beautiful Awards. Get in touch if there's something you want to work on.
It’s so nice to meet you.

I also recently designed and built Yelp’s Coronavirus Impact Report, this microsite celebrating 15 Years of Yelp, and this home for Yelp's Economic Average reports; illustrated some rookie cards for this project on the NBA draft; explored America's favourite summer drinks, according to Yelp; worked on HCCI's report on US Hospital Market Concentration; worked on visualizations and design for B6's first, second, third, and fourth quarterly reports of 2019; and contributed to this Pudding Piece on the Biggest Pop Star.
