Sam started working in the Building and Construction trades while still in college in California in the 1980’s, learning to estimate residential roofing from an experienced (grizzled) 30-year vet. While Sam has a Degree in Sports Medicine with a minor in Business, he started working for a large roofing company as an estimator taking off plans for large projects.
He transitioned to a sister company managing a Roofing/Insulation/Drywall Supply branch in the Bay Area of California for 7 years. He moved to Oregon in 1994, to become a District Manager for a Building Products manufacturer serving OR and WA states, and has been selling Roofing and Building products in the Western US ever since.
Sam learned, from his Italian mother, to “question and challenge everything.” Using his inquiring mind and consultative skills, he provides information and helps his customers educate themselves on the process of purchasing their new roof and becoming comfortable in hiring a contractor. He treats every customer as family.
Sam has lived in the Tualatin and Wilsonville area since he moved to the Portland metro. He has three grown daughters, two live in the area and one in California. Sam is the fourth child of eight in a large Italian family. He loves to cook because he loves to eat (thank you Grandma Rose) and never passes on the opportunity to try anything. Sam played sports his whole life and has interests in many activities.
