Sam hails from Santa Fe, New Mexico. He received a BA in Studio Art from Whitman College, and then spent seven years chasing glory (and trying to avoid road rash) as a professional bicycle racer. He started working at Trademark in 2012, while still racing full-time.
In 2016, Sam completed his Masters of Business Administration (MBA) from Boise State University. He now brings a wealth of strategic and analytic insight to Trademark, which complement his creative skill set. In his free time Sam builds giant puppets and takes them to concerts and festivals with The Colossal Collective.
