Ernest Hemingway once said that “Courage is grace under pressure.” Sam Buck had never heard that quote. Nor does he know who Ernest Hemingway is. Stuck in 2010, Sam prefers to spend his days eating avocados, abandoning his footwear (flip flops only) at the clerb, drinking Two Hearted, and listening to Jack Johnson. He comes to Ross from the Golden State (man… another Californian?), having built his career in the education and philanthropy sectors, and will be spending his summer impact investing with REDF in San Francisco. When he’s not jammin to JJ, he spends his time working for the Social Venture Fund and inhaling cheese puffs.
Get to know him while you can! He’ll likely decide to stay on one of the reserves forever.
