After graduating from Hunter College with a degree in Film, he worked for documentarian Ken Burns and his company, Florentine Films, before joining Willinger Talent. Along the way, he worked on various film and television sets during production, such as Showtime’s “Billions” and “Homeland,” building his acumen for what should constitute professionalism and good talent. A self-proclaimed “news-junkie” at a very young age, Samuel knew he had the television news business entrenched deeply within his DNA.
