Sam joined the Ripley Design team shortly after graduating from CSU in 2013. He started designing in high school by drawing the construction documents of his high school's high ropes course in Colorado Springs. Sam continued to use and improve his drafting and design skills while working on small projects through college including a conceptual trail alignment and climbing/ropes course detail drawings. From concept sketching to proposed renderings to construction details, he enjoys using design to solve problems. Sam's goal is to create art through unique public spaces.
In Sam's free time he enjoys playing multiple instruments, disc golfing and playing volleyball. He is a self acclaimed beer snob and perfects his palette on the weekends when he is not riding through Poudre Canyon on his motorcycle.
