Dean Samuels

Team, Marketing

Where did you go to school?
I studied communications at Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton.

What do you do at RMW?
My role involves marketing and communication support for San Francisco, San Jose, and Sacramento Studios.

What do you like about the firm?
There is a strong culture of teamwork here. Across disciplines and studios, we enjoy our work and the people we work with.

What do you do outside the firm?
I absolutely love that San Francisco is a few hours drive from the northern coasts, forests, the desert and snow-capped peaks, I try to enjoy them all with family and friends. Movies, live music/local art events and gym activities (swim, cycle, yoga, etc.) usually fill the time when I’m not varying from another great recipe.

What is your favorite building or space?
The World Trade Center Transportation Hub in NY is my new favorite building. I was finally able to visit recently and was awed by the overwhelming feeling of reverence in such a public space. Maybe due to the hundreds of lives lost on 9/11, or maybe just thoughtful design. The main hall felt like a cathedral in which I should have been solemn, almost doleful, while on the another hand like walking within the torso of a giant carcass and admiring the curved steel beams that mimicked perfectly whitewashed bones.
