Hey, I'm Sami!
Chicago, Illinois, United States · Member since June 2008

Hey Everyone! My name is Sami. I am a San Francisco native currently living in Chicago, IL, passionate about education, design, and social impact. I've traveled the world to places like Nepal, Japan, Mexico and beyond, but have yet to use airbnb, but think it's one of the best examples of a new shared economy.

I'm trained as an industrial designer at the Rhode Island School of Design, I have continued my quest for meaningful work at the intersection of design/social impact/education. I've had the privilege of getting to teach at numerous colleges including my alma mater, Pratt, Brown, and now Northwestern University where I also run an initiative called Design for America. It's great and I travel a lot so figured I should get on here to start booking rooms through airbnb!

When I travel, I'm usually out and about most of the time and am looking for a nice quiet place to stay where I can sleep, relax and hopefully access the internet. Thank you for opening up your homes to all of us here.
