In January of 2013, fresh out of design college, Sam started coming to Think Shift’s Beer Fridays and didn't stop until someone decided to hire him. He’s been in the industry for eight years, all of them with Think Shift. In that time, Sam has been the design lead with Westeel, Monsanto, ADAMA (Global and Canadian chapter), and Cibus - pushing pixels, building brands and providing artistic and conceptual direction. He also trained himself in 3D modelling software and occasionally dabbles in animation.
On the side, Sam collects hobbies – blacksmithing, amateur astronomy, building bikes, canoeing and cross-stitching to name a few. Sam is also an active member of the Astronomical Society in Winnipeg.
