Samuel Beam

Senior Software Engineer

After studying biology and oceanography in college, and spending some time hunting down king crab and salmon in the Bering Sea, Sam landed on the east coast in the midst of the dot-com boom, when the cutting-edge technologies included CGI scripts and Flash.

After working for Arnold Worldwide and other agencies in Boston, and running a small interactive
development shop, he moved onto the publishing world with USA TODAY, and then recently led the tech team at a renewable energy startup. Sam now lives in New Hampshire, has two brilliant and creative daughters, and is up in the mountains hiking and exploring, or in the ocean on a surfboard, at every opportunity.
