“Everyone has a plan, until they get punched in the mouth.”

Mike Tyson

Sam grew up in South London where he lived with a model family (quite literally – his brother models!). An avid rugby fan throughout his school years, Sam planned on playing competitively and even had trials for the London Wasps - until an injury halted his dreams of sport stardom.

As a result, he instead decided to pursue his love of languages by studying French at Bristol University. During his time here, he had the opportunity to spend a year abroad in the French city of Toulouse (ooo la la). However, after a year of living with a group of rap musicians (and getting very little sleep!), he decided his hilarious and unique sense of humour was lost on a French audience, which resulted in him returning to his roots back in the big smoke.

After graduating with first class honours and taking yet another holiday to South America (sorry, I mean ‘expanding his mind with global travel’), Sam decided to pursue a career in Paid Social at Merkle where his bright attitude and insightful problem-solving abilities have been put to good use.

So, if you’re lucky enough to have Sam on the job then you can rest assured that your accounts will be well looked after – he's a true asset to the Paid Social department here at Merkle | Periscopix.
