Head of Design, Click Security
Born and raised in Salt Lake City, Samara studied art at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston and Cross-Cultural Communication with a focus on Spanish and Arabic at Tufts University. She arrived at interaction design as a profession and calling by pursuing the most inspiring aspects of her work as a set designer, pedal-powered machine builder, graphic designer and refugee-liaison and asking how all of these are connected. She worked as an Interaction Designer at InContext Design in Boston, then moved to Austin, TX to complete a degree in Interaction Design and Social Entrepreneurship at the Austin Center for Design. She now heads up the design team at Click Security, an Austin-based network security company.
