Sam’s profound connection with the diverse landscapes of Montana, combined with his experience in land management and real estate, positions him as an exemplary choice for anyone seeking to navigate the complexities of land ownership. Raised amidst the varied terrains of Montana—from the mountainous Flathead Valley to the sagebrush expanses around Billings—Sam developed an early and deep understanding of the land’s agricultural value and recreational potential. His hands-on experiences, ranging from guiding in the rugged backcountry to managing recreational operations and running cow/calf pairs on a significant ranch, have endowed him with unparalleled insights into optimizing land use and enhancing its natural beauty. 

Sam earned a degree in Biochemistry from Montana State University. After graduation, he expanded his expertise by guiding hunters in the Yukon and Alaska and managing recreational and agricultural projects on a large ranch in eastern Montana. This unique blend of skills, including his certification as a wilderness first responder, equips Sam with the knowledge and capability to assist clients in all aspects of land ownership and adventure.

In 2023, Sam brought his wealth of experience and shared values to Fay Ranches, where he continues to champion the preservation of the Western lifestyle and the productive stewardship of the land. Outside of his professional endeavors, Sam's passion for the outdoors shines through in his pursuits of bow hunting, rifle hunting for trophy mule deer, trapping, skiing, and supporting his girlfriend's rodeo competitions. With Sam, clients gain not only an agent with an in-depth understanding of land and wildlife but also a partner who lives the lifestyle they seek to embrace.
