Sam Kenny A 2016 graduate of Detroit’s College for Creative Studies, Sam is currently a creative designer in the Cadillac exterior Studio, where he focuses on creating advanced, emotional concepts for the storied brand. Before Joining GM, Sam interned at various companies around the world, working on everything from cars and motorcycles, to aeroplanes and electric bicycles.

Sam was born in England, but grew up in Greensboro, North Carolina. Sam has been drawing ever since he could hold a pencil, and loved to build and invent. Seeing his passion, his father, an engineer at Volvo Truck, took him into the design studio one day, where he saw sketches and models and immediately knew that this was the only career for him.

Sam’s career in design has taught him that having such an amazing job is a privilege. Not everyone gets to live the childhood dream of drawing cars all day, but with hard work and dedication, anyone can. In his spare time, Sam enjoys fly fishing, music and helping others reach their dreams of becoming car designers, as so many helped him reach his.
