Sam Harris

Senior Project Specialist

Born to a family full of editors and authors, storytelling has been my life-blood. Whether hearing the same story from my dad for the tenth time or having my school papers torn apart by my copyediting mom, being able to convey a compelling and interesting story or journey is ingrained in me.

I’m lucky enough to be married to my high school sweetheart who inspires me every day with her drive and work ethic. Together, we share the responsibility of caring for two Labrador retrievers who keep us on our toes with their unlimited energy.

Deeply entrenched in Chicago sports fandom, my communication skills are put to the test during football, basketball, and baseball season. It’s quite the effort to come up with different responses and ways to criticize how poorly my teams always seem to perform.
