Sam joined the Runyan Capital team in Beverly Hills after moving to Los Angeles from Kansas City in 2019. Sam graduated with his Bachelor’s degree in Finance from Kansas State University. With his original area of emphasis being Computer Science, Sam changed his major after taking an introductory Finance course, a subject that he always knew was important, but at the time, he knew little about.
