Sam Purcell was born in Santa Monica and raised in Hidden Hills, where he trick-or-treated each year from Sinbad the comedian, an eminently generous candy-giver. Sam attended Thacher, a boarding school in California, where he learned to ride and care for horses. At Dartmouth College, he majored in film and studio art, but explored his interest in psychology as well. Sam loves golfing, television (Party Down is a current favorite), movies, nice weather, great views, futuretimeline.net, fantasy football but most most of all FANCY. He has a twin attending law school, and his heroes (i.e., Sam’s heroes, not the twin’s) are Neil deGrasse Tyson and James Dyson.
