Portrait of Sam Kang

Sam Kang

The Mechanic
Sam has a natural curiosity which started as a kid taking apart and putting back together all the machines in his house. It later manifested itself through digital games, multi user experiences, and online entertainment for all ages. These days that curiosity helps drive serious change for serious clients (and the not so serious). Off the clock, Sam hangs out with his two kids and wife in glorious Northern New Jersey.

Portrait of Laura Zimbaldi

Laura Zimbaldi

Project Maven
Laura knows how to run a project like she knows the back of her hand. It's fair to say that Laura kicks butt at pretty much everything. She has years of experience working on every kind of project - including jet engines(!!!), and brings a sense of humor and a killer sense of style to her work. When she's not managing to perfection, she's teaching her three kids how to boat, crush it on the ski slopes and sweat awesomeness.

He’s built up a wide range of expertise through the years from user research, to experience design, to product strategy and management. We’re not sure where he finds the time, but Adam also does really rad things outside of work like collecting vintage electronics, photography, archery, and working on his many acres of land.
