Sam is a Senior Project Manager for Seattle-King County LEAD.
Sam is passionate about making people’s lives better via public policy and accessible public goods. Prior to working for LEAD, Sam pursued this passion in a number of ways, including helping people to access services as an outreach case manager in New York City, working on advocacy to end hunger in Washington State, helping to research and design Seattle’s cannabis equity policy, and by earning his Masters of Public Administration with a concentration in Social Policy from the Evans School at the University of Washington.
At PDA, Sam was originally hired as a Community Organizer, working to build community relationships capable of synthesizing public safety and harm reduction. As a Project Manager, those relationships are still one of Sam’s main priorities, but he also enjoys facilitating program functions, learning, and contributing to program design.
Outside of work, Sam enjoys rock climbing, making bread, and eating bread.
