Since BYU

Sam remained a part of 'the business' by starting EmptySpace Technology LLC in 2006, a company dedicated to bringing collaborative, internet technologies to the live entertainment industry. His product, VirtualCallboard helps arts administrators organize, disseminate and archive their company information using the collaborative power of the internet.

Sam married his wife Audrey (BYU Finance '07) in 2009, and resides in the Dallas Texas area.
