From Seattle by way of San Francisco, Samantha is the Managing Director and co-owner of Percolate Galactic, a Jakarta-based creative services agency on a mission to make Jakarta a(n even) more a{w}esome place to live, work, and do business.

When she’s not in the office (or soaking up free wifi at a neighborhood cafe), she spends most of her time testing out her Indonesian on unsuspecting bajaj drivers, plotting new (ad)ventures, and filling the internet with photos of her pets. (Because if there’s one thing that the internet needs more of, it’s cat pics.). You can follow her on Twitter @sam_sheezy.
