You Should Know About Me

Key Accomplishments

I helped build, launch, and operate CastleVille, allowing Zynga to IPO.
I recently exited a startup that was majority acquired owned by United Health Care.
I'm an expert general engineer that understands the need for a good UX, product market fit and the importance of iterative analysis.
I'm very good at wearing most hats, except for UI/IA/Marketing/Design. I'm not the greatest product manager in the world, but can do it when required. I couldn't draw a portrait to save my life.
I have 2 young boys, and ride a motorcycle to work.

How I like to work with people As a Cofounder

Despite the name, I'm big into trust and merit. I feel like you should be able to trust me to handle my end, and me the same. Merit is based on real world outcomes. Take a problem, pick a solution, execute it, and learn and improve as you go. Own and accept failure, I fail all the time, but once in a while I get a good idea.

As an Advisor

I will help your backend scale, regardless of whatever problem you are currently having. Hourly rate, in, fixed, and done.

Vouch for them.

Dave Pottinger
We worked together
Samuel is a fantastic 360 thinker. He is excellent at evaluating the entire landscape and proceeding in an incredibly informed manner. He is ... one of the few tech people I know that can balance risk and pragmatism equally well.
Mohan Reddy
We worked together at Zynga
Sam and I worked together for about 8 years now and in my eight year association with him I always found to be very passionate, open-minded, ... forward-looking and full of ideas. All the qualities would definitely make him a great entrepreneur.
Kapeesh Saraf
We worked together at Zynga  •  Director of Product, Zynga.
Sam's a great engineer - very focused on building the right solution for the problem. He is also very thoughtful and has a keen product intu ... ition.
Cadir Lee
We worked together  •  Advisor, Opower and Advisor, Choose Energy. Stanford grad.
Sam works incredibly hard on any project he tackles. His expertise and ability to dive in make him a 10x multiplier at any company.
Tricia (Burke) Fjeldheim
We worked together  •  Sr. Project Manager, Rally Health / Audax Health. Previously Portfolio Services Manager / Sr. Technical Program Manager, GFS PMO, Zynga.
Sam is extraordinarily smart and driven to start his own thing that brings a lot of needed value to the EMR/health space. Health care is fin ... ancially wasteful and Sam can help make that space logical while also monetize for himself and others.
