Meet the Mangos – A Chat with Sam

Well it’s that time again to sit down with one of our staff. Today it’s Sam, our newest Interactive Developer.

Sam - SEO & Content Strategist


SplitMango: Hey Sam! Man, that smile would make anyone blush. Okay, quick question to get us started, what’s your name?

Sam: My name is Sam Jeanes.

SplitMango: What’s your background in design and development?

Sam: I attended BCIT’s New Media Design & Web Development Program, but have had interest in photography since a young age. I started working in SEO for a company in Vancouver right out of school, and have been working on my own designs in my free time.

SplitMango: What drew you to coding and design?

Sam: The ability to create beautiful and functional things from just an idea has always been something I’ve been drawn to. Whether it’s web design and development, photography, or music. Creating unique and interesting content has been a driving force in my life and continues to shape my future.

SplitMango: What an inspiring young man you are. How long have you been working at SplitMango?

Sam: I started working in early April 2015. This is my second week here!

SplitMango: Fresh meat! What’s your favourite thing to do when you’re not coding and designing?

Sam: When I’m not working on the computer, I try to get outside as much as possible, biking, hiking, surfing, longboarding etc. I really enjoy watching films, and going to take photos or videos as well.

SplitMango: If there was one thing you could change about the Internet what would it be?

Sam: All of the extremely negative comments and venting in forums or similar sites I see would be able to be turned off with one click. Seriously, I get that people need to vent, but it’s wasting everyone’s time having to sort through it all.

SplitMango: Sam, thank you so much for chatting with us.

Sam: Thank you for interviewing me!
