Sam grew up in the Hudson Valley and first got involved with aquatic sciences as a volunteer with the Audubon Society wrangling snapping turtles at the age of 14. He graduated with a BA in Biology from Vassar College and an MA in Animal Behavior and Conservation from Hunter College. More recently he spent 6 years as Environmental Job Skills Program Director at Rocking the Boat in the south Bronx. There he worked with underserved youth from the local community with the aim of providing them job skills training and scientific education through hands-on environmental restoration, as well as lots of fun exploring the Bronx River, East River, and Long Island Sound on rowboats and power boats.
