Tenure at CBF: October 2014-Present
Education: University of Georgia, Master's degree in Conservation Ecology and Sustainable Development; Brown University, Bachelor's degree in Geology with a Biology double major.
Prior Experience: Sam is originally from the suburbs of Boston, Massachusetts, but his family's roots are in Woolford, Maryland on the Eastern Shore. His love of science and the Bay were sparked in sixth grade at a Chesapeake Bay Ecology summer program, and he has been a subscriber to the Bay Journal ever since. He has taught environmental education in many forms up and down the east coast, including with Save The Bay - Narragansett Bay in Rhode Island and community outreach at the University of Georgia. Sam loves fostering appreciation and care of the natural world through experiential education, and is excited to get to live and teach in the Chesapeake Bay watershed. When he's not on, in, or near the water, you can probably find Sam playing soccer, biking, exploring, or wandering around a museum.
