Sam is a Canberra local and has been with us since 2014. Sam has twice now tried to leave us for more exotic locations but the pull of Canberra and SAA keeps bringing him back.

Sam studied for his Bachelor of Architecture at the University of Canberra. Whilst studying he worked with Guida Moseley Brown Architects from 2010-2013, working on projects such as the Canberra International Airport and Parliament House Upgrades. In 2016 Sam worked for EPR Architects in London. During his time there he worked on Heritage Projects such as the Hotel Russell and the Old War Office in Whitehall.

Whilst with SAA, Sam has worked on many projects in the office that have gone on to win awards. Our clients enjoy working with him and the fresh perspective he brings to a project. Since returning at the start of 2017 Sam has reclaimed his rightful place in control of music in the office.
