Learn More About Sammy
Sammy was born in Washington, DC, and spent most of his life in the DMV (District, Maryland, Virginia). His favorite thing about living in Northern VA is that it’s only a 30-minute drive to some of the most valuable historical monuments and sites. He enjoys visiting museums and attending art exhibits. Sammy also happens to be a plant enthusiast. Part of his fascination with plants began at an early age as he was always outside. "It's amazing to think about the fact that each and every plant is different; not one is exactly like another," he says. Sammy's favorite plant is bamboo, which is actually grass! (Mind-blowing.) Fun fact: bamboo is the fastest-growing plant globally. It can grow one-to-four inches in a day and regrows quickly after being cut down, making it the No. 1 renewable resource. Sammy enjoys a few more activities, including yoga, hiking, tennis, swimming, playing the piano, and learning new languages/traveling.
