In 2011 he began working on "Hung" with HBO and the hit AMC production "Hell on Wheels". in 2012 he worked on NBC's "The Firm" before executive producing "Rogue".

Born and raised five miles outside NYC in Maywood, NJ, Sam knew she was destined to work in TV at the age of 5 when the MTV Show "The State” was filming at her kindergarten. Instead of going home after school, she asked her mom if she could stay and watch. When the little girl they had cast in the sketch Pre-School Narc couldn’t nail her line, they asked Sam to give it a try, and somewhere on the internet exists her sole credit in front of the camera. A graduate of the USC Business-Cinematic Arts Joint Degree Program, her experience ranges from lit management to international TV to learning a lot (and getting really good at ping pong) in a writers’ room and on the set of a show.
