Born in DC, Sam grew up not too far from College Park in Bethesda (Montgomery County), Maryland. Sam joins the Maryland Hillel in November 2021 as an Operations Associate. He recently graduated from the University of Texas in Austin (Hook em’) in May 2021 and loved every minute of it. While in Austin, Sam managed the student interns while working at the Texas Hillel. He also worked as a tour guide for the University of Texas Admissions Office and was always playing an Intramural sport…regardless of the season. Sam graduated from UT with a degree in International Relations and Global Studies and hopes to one day work overseas.

As a new member of the Maryland Hillel community, Sam is really looking forward to meeting the students, parents, and any other member of the UMD community. He loves nothing more than when a friendly face says hello and introduces themselves. So, if you’re visiting the Maryland Hillel, please do!
