Sam’s Community Involvement:
As a life long North Shore resident, Sam is a believer in the importance of a strong community. He serves on the board of directors of North Vancouver FC, a club dedicated to providing guidance and athletic opportunities to over 4000 boys and volunteers.
Sam was raised and lives in North Vancouver where he and his wife are attempting, successfully at times, to raise two young sons. When fit, Sam runs, cycles, skis and races but now that he has very active children he’s content playing mediocre soccer and occasionally visiting a gym.
