Hello. It's me.
I’m Samara Zabala, or Sam for short. I’m a versatile little creature dwelling in San Diego, California who loves web development, graphic design, and drawing things.
With graphic arts experience since 2010, I graduated as one of the top students from Platt College San Diego with an Associates of Applied Science on Graphic Design in 2015 and a Bachelor of Science in Media Arts emphasizing on Web Design and Development in 2017.
Outside of work, I’m a musician who loves doing covers, or performing at local events.
