Hi there! I’m Sam, a third-generation Texan who wears the title “New York transplant” with pride. I currently work as the Marketing Manager for Empire Startups; the largest community of FinTech entrepreneurs, investors, and innovators in the world – as well as the host of New York FinTech Week.
Before this, I was in various marketing roles at early-stage startups, including Seashell, Medley, and Petal. Working at a startup, “wearing many hats” is a phrase commonly thrown around. Based on my experience, you could say my hat hair is next level 🙃 What draws me to these environments is a foundation built on a unified mission, with endless opportunities for collaboration, continued learning, and further growth.
My skillsets includes copywriting, social media creation and management, email marketing and brand building+awareness. My friends would describe me as chronically online, beagle-obsessed, and a Millennial / Gen-Z “cusp-er”. I’m also a proud journalism alum from The University of Texas at Austin. Hook ‘Em! 🤘
