For as long as he could remember, Sam has always had a hand (or foot) in nature and a passion for adventure. When his love of nature began to wane, Sam learned about Primitive Pursuits, where he spent two years as a camper. His time at Primitives not only strengthened his love of nature, but transformed it into a driving force in his life. This led to Sam being a CIT for two years, after which Primitives asked him to be an official part of the team. Sam is excited for his third summer as an official instructor and can't wait to share his passions of primitive skills and nature exploration with more people! When not at Primitives, Sam can be found playing music, climbing a tree, or simply enjoying nature.
When not at Primitive Pursuits, Sam always brings his love of adventure with him. This has led him to climbing mountains barefoot, interning with the Ithaca Forest Preschool, and now to Green Mountain College in Vermont. Before he begins school, Sam is excited to have another awesome, muddy summer at Primitive Pursuits!
