Hi, I'm Sam Drozdov.

I'm a senior at the University of Maryland studying Product Design & Software Innovation. This semester I'm working on an independent study where I am trying to improve the college student academic experience by designing an alternative to GPAs.

This August, I'll be joining Facebook as a product designer. This past summer I was a product design intern at Bread ― a fintech startup changing consumer financing. Before then I was the director of events at Startup Shell ― a student-run incubator for student-run startups at UMD. Last summer, I was working on Passenger, a company I co-founded with my brother to improve the commuting experience. I also worked with Slide and was a founding student of Make School. You can download my resume here.

I'm passionate about the intersection of design, technology, and business. It is here where we can solve problems with sustainable products.

In my free time, I like to cook, rock climb, and recently took up drawing. I'm also an avid gamer. Challenge me in Super Smash Bros. Melee, Overwatch, or Blokus.

Let's chat ― samuel.drozdov@gmail.com.
