Sam Gerstenzang

It's pronounced Ger-sten-zang.

I'm a Principal at Sidewalk Labs, where we create companies and products to make cities better.

Most recently, I ran the product, design and data teams at Imgur. Before that, I was on the investment team at a16z. I previously held various engineering and product roles and graduated from Stanford.

Follow me on Twitter, Medium (archive) or LinkedIn.

I think about how people read and read about how people think. I like augmented cognition, architectural design for thinking, cities, operational efficiency at scale, strong contrasts, irony and well-designed objects and experiences.

I'd love to hear from you.
