About the speaker

From the moment Sam sunk his hands into his first bag of cocoa beans, he knew he was destined to make chocolate. Born and raised in California with farmer Grandparents on both sides of the family, Sam approaches the agricultural side of chocolate making with integrity and passion. Sam has spent years studying everything he can about his personal liquid gold and plans to keep learning every day.
When he is not dreaming of roast profiles and winnowed cocoa beans, he is playing any type of ball with his son Salem, making morning coffee for his wife Starr, or riding his bike through the trees in Raleigh, NC.
CAM Raleigh seeks to curate the most contemporary works of art and design possible—those still emerging, growing, and living. We hope to spark new thinking by creating ever-changing experiences that explore what’s now and nearing.

At Michael’s English Muffins, our English Muffins go through a 12-24 hour process where every gram that goes into the batch matters, including the long man-hours they take to prepare. It is a true labor of love and you can taste the difference. Again I hear my dads voice –“attention to detail, attention to detail, attention to detail” This is my history, and it is my future.
