I'm Samantha Lionheart, I mostly go by Sam, and I have the honor of being a technical writer here at iFixit. Most of the time my writings will teach you valuable things about technology. This time they will be used to gab aimlessly about myself.


Yes, that is my real name. No, I'm not related to Richard the Lionheart, though my dad's name is Richard. No, I'm not related to Jean-Claude Van Damme, though I am fluent in French. Yes, that Of Monsters and Men song is pretty rad, though I don't speak a word of Icelandic. Well, I guess I know 'stulka' means girl, but that's a different story.


I got my degree from Cal Poly, SLO (the ''real'' Cal Poly) in Graphic Communication, which deals primarily with printing. I concentrated in the design end of things, got a minor in packaging, and was a student manager of the on-campus printshop. I also took way too many art, literature, typography, sociology and history courses. This bit was meant to explain that I really like learning, about everything. And I guess I was going to work in a warning about how much I love run-on sentences. And well-placed fragments. But maybe it has become a stream-of-conscious ramble that we should try to escape from.

What I do

My interests include MOVIES, BOOKS, ARTS, and GRATUITOUS POP CULTURE REFERENCES. I split my time between working, watching things, drawing things, and making things. And as you may have guessed, I'm on tumblr quite a bit.
