A VT native, Sam has always tried to fix old broken things, including owning his first project car before ever having a permit. Sam spent 3 years living in Plattsburgh while getting a physics degree, followed by returning to VT to complete a mechanical engineering degree at UVM. After building electric race cars at UVM the racing bug never left. Sam moved to WA to work aircraft assembly automation and spent any spare time turbocharging and endurance road racing vintage Datsuns. Beta drew Sam and his family back to VT with the undeniably appealing opportunity to be a part of bettering the world.
