Hi there! My name is Sam Zaref. I am a student at the Rhode Island School of Design studying Industrial Design. My main focus and passion lies in physical product design.

All my life, I have had a passion for art and making. From Legos to woodworking, I have spent my life tinkering and constructing. For me, industrial design has been a perfect fit. Throughout my time at RISD and my experience in the field, I have built up skills in various methods of making and have strengthened my design process, integrating technology with traditional approaches.

In addition to my work as an industrial designer I am an avid photographer and videographer. I am also an FAA licensed commercial drone pilot (part 107) and have photographed for various clients.

Outside of work I enjoy many outdoor activities and sports including skiing, kayaking, biking, hiking, tennis, and exploring new places.
