Sam graduated from Leeds Beckett University in 2015 with First Class Honours in French and Spanish and took the following year to travel extensively with a battered old backpack. His first job in the Big Smoke was as a Private Personal Assistant for a family of high-profile executives before he moved into the journalistic sphere. Sam has experience writing for luxury online publications and is continuing to study creative writing in his spare time. A keen runner and swimmer, he is competing in Tough Mudder this year to raise funds for charity.
His absolute passions are world travel and food and he has strong aspirations to move to the Far East later in life.
