Tactile Explorer. A seeker of obscured insights, Sam finds his strength in connecting disparate ideas to create a holistic vision. Unafraid in tackling bold new ventures, Sam has resided in seven different time zones and maintains a deep devotion to skiing and the mountains. These undertakings echo his general philosophy: “Some people feel the rain, others just get wet.” With the hands of a woodworker and the mind of an architect, Sam’s time spent as a carpenter greatly informs his architectural practice and allows him to specialize in wood framing. At Encore, Sam gravitates towards impactful projects that spearhead strong sustainability goals.
