Sam is incredible - I've never known anyone who approaches the world with such rigorous curiosity. As CEO of Drop.io, he defined opportunities by growing deep understanding of the historical way markets have moved and how industries have changed, and then applied those learnings to what was happening around us.
Sam is smart, thoughtful, and one of those people that seems to be able to see the future and move before anyone else sees what's coming. He can also beat the pants off you at a game of Settlers of Catan. I'd be thrilled to be involved with him in again any capacity.
When I first met Sam, he came to the firm I was at looking for help building what would become Drop.io. I was put on the project and thought to myself, this won't work. Turns out, after a few months of hard work and seeing how much passion and vision Sam truly had as a tech entrepreneur, I couldn't wait any longer to join the team.
Sam is crazy smart, fast paced, and knows exactly how to motivate and push people beyond their perceived limits. I would most certainly be interested in working with Sam again. Hopefully I will have the opportunity.
Sam was the founder/CEO of drop.io before we were acquired by Facebook. He pairs incredible product vision with a gritty ability to execute for a truly unique entrepreneurial capability. He is a well-grounded leader who inspires his team and doesn't balk at working in the trenches. I would join Sam in building anything he set his sights on in the future and he'd be the first person I asked to invest in my company.
