Hello! My name is Sam, and I am originally from Katy, Texas (outside of Houston). I've loved living in downtown Austin (with my new pup, Farfel!) since college, and I enjoy keeping myself busy here. I graduated from UT with a degree in American Studies and Business, and I now work for HomeAway. Both my parents are from NYC, so even though I'm from Texas I was raised with a lot of New York pride (so yes, I love the Yankees AND Giants)! I'm very passionate about being involved in the Jewish community, and it's always been an important part of my life. I'm pretty much obsessed with these four things: the TV show LOST, Bruce Springsteen, Jewish mobsters, and anything with chocolate.
