Sam Thorogood

I'm an engineer who enjoys board games, travel, emoji, design discussions and long walks on the beach. My partner Dr Nicky Ringland is at Google, and in the past, founded Grok Learning. Together, we've created at least one small human.

I'd consider myself a generalist, and I'm a Xoogler. While I was at Google, I helped build Santa Tracker and various documentation sites. I worked on Chrome, Drive, App Engine, Google Wave, and Google Maps. I've spoken at, and worked on, events like Chrome Dev Summit, web.dev LIVE, and Google I/O.

Aeons ago, I studied CS at the University of Sydney. My 1st class Honours thesis discussed files and their relationships.
