Sam was born in Reading in 1990 and moved from Reading to Aberystwyth to study European Politics in 2008 graduating in 2012 with a Masters in European Politics.

Working in Campaigns and Communications for Kirsty Williams AM and Roger Williams (then MP), sam developed a particular interest in rural issues such as farming and access to broadband and rural phone signal.

Sam was elected Chair of Welsh Young Liberals and became its longest serving chair.  During his tenure the Welsh Young Liberals successfully campaigned the Welsh Government to introduce a bus pass for young people.

In 2016 Sam moved to Swansea to work for Swansea University International Development Office, working to support the exchange programmes specifically with Erasmus. This later became a permanent role working for Swansea University Medical School in Marketing as Digital Lead for the School.

In 2015 Sam was elected to Brecon Town Council in a by-election and was re-elected in 2017, eventually spear-heading a campaign to have the Rainbow flag flown from Guildhall in the face of homophobic criticism on Social Media.
