Sam is a tinkerer at heart and a versatile thinker who enjoys working with his hands—he’s spent much of his life taking things apart and then putting them back together just to see how they work. This passion for self-learning has guided most aspects of Sam’s life, from his time in the U.S. Marine Corps and as a Systems Administrator to picking up new programming languages and his precision woodworking hobby of repairing and making guitars—he also plays them (as well as the piano)! Sam loves to spend time with his wife, Peggy, and their daughter, Samantha, who shares his joy of building with their LEGO® projects. Their latest LEGO endeavor? The Beatles Yellow Submarine.
