Sam Abuelsamid

I'm an all around content creator and technologist.

After more than two decades as an engineer in the auto industry I switched to writing about the industry. As a journalist, product communications writer and now industry analyst, I've covered the state of the business and technology and where it's going in the future.

My background in automotive engineering gives me a perspective on how the process of developing cars works and an in-depth knowledge of the new technology being developed.

My interest in new technology has allowed me to discover and adapt tools to a variety of purposes to help clients find solutions to communications needs.

I'm also author of Recharging the Car, Chronicling the development of the 2011 Chevrolet Volt. It's an eBook compilation of my writings about the Volt from 2007-2010. It's available from Amazon’s Kindle Store.
