Sam Abdullaev
About

Hey, I’m Sam, nice to meet you!

I’m a designer currently living in sunny Sochi 🌴. Yes, we have a place with nice weather in Russia too.

In design, I’m a data-driven design advocate leaning towards building and launching products in a fast, efficient manner. My main goal is to connect business needs with the needs of people.

In real life, I’m an explorer, always trying to push back my boundaries.

In 2018 I co-founded my agency to specialize in design and development.

8 facts about me

  1. I’m this type of guy who loves to wear everything monochrome except socks.
  2. I’m a dog sitter. I just enjoy to spend time with different dogs and learn about them.
  3. I have a passion to explore different areas of life, so I have a very strange variety of skills including balance-boarding, juggling, playing guitar/uke and playing baseball.
  4. I love reading. My favorite books are "Surely You're Joking, Mr. Feynman!", "The Obstacle Is the Way", "Harry Potter and the Methods of Rationality".
  5. I document my life and create yearly videos. Here is the 2018 year.
  6. I love connecting to different people myself and connect them to each other. That’s how, for example, I started creating CouchSurfing meetups.
  7. I love good jokes and seriously thinking about building a standup comedian career. But my wife says that I have no humor sense. WELL, see.
  8. I have been in Russian army for one year.
