As Chief Innovation Officer, Sam is not only out there going on 10+ mile runs, he’s also making maneuvers all around our IT department, developing data-driven products meant to revolutionize the industry. His background in business finance and decision analytics have been integral parts of DSD Partners’ focus on technology and exponential growth.
Sam understands in order to stay ahead one must continue to learn and his extensive skills in Python, R, and SQL prove that. Don’t know what that is? Beep boop, beep boop, its’ computer talk for, “don’t worry Sam knows”! It’s his job to both understand the industry as well as modern technology in order to innovate and bring disruptive products to the DSD ecosystem.
When Sam isn’t running around innovating products, you can find him at home spending time with his wife, playing with his kids, and fixing things around the house which he attributes to his lifetime of tinkering with things. Living 1500 miles away from where he was born in Texas, (a distance he now clocks every year, according to his trusty running shoes,) Sam enjoys his home in Virginia. After all you can listen to podcasts by Stephen Tobolowsky from anywhere! Listening to powerful storytellers is inspiring to Sam, and offers him a welcome break from reading about program languages.
