Hi, I'm Samah!
I'm a designer + urban planner. I'm passionate about solving complex urban problems with equitable and innovative designs.
I'm currently an urban designer at CD+A, a planning and design firm focusing on integrated transportation, land use planning and mixed-pedestrian-friendly community design. Prior, I was the innovation intern with the City of West Hollywood. I helped relaunch the Innovation Fund and assisted with developing the framework for the city's first Smart City Strategic Plan. Previously, I was a Design Fellow at Amigos de los Rios, designing urban parks in park deficient neighborhoods in Los Angeles County.
My background includes working for various design firms and volunteering with local organizations like CicLAvia, during their car-free events to create better connected, vibrant public spaces. I have a Master in Urban Planning from UCLA and a Bachelor of Arts in Design from CSU Long Beach.
Would love to connect with you!
