Sam is FEE's Senior Development Associate engaged in building strategic partnerships and serving the organization's generous sponsors. He was excited to return to FEE after first discovering his passion for free market economics as a seminar attendee, and later beginning his career there as a programs intern.
His early experiences at FEE inspired Sam to pursue public policy research at the Independence Institute in Denver, CO and the Cato Institute in Washington, DC before transitioning to Cato's development team. Prior to (re)joining FEE, Sam helped manage the philanthropic relationships of Cato's president and CEO.
When he's not serving FEE's partners, Sam enjoys camping, exploring historical sites, and listening to live music.
