Samuel grew up in Whitehorse, Yukon and after finishing high school moved to Edmonton where he started and ran a small business for several years. Samuel began a Bachelor of Commerce at MacEwan University but earned early admittance to the Juris Doctor program at the University of Alberta and graduated in 2020.
Samuel started at Birdsell Grant in the summer of 2018, after his first year of law school and returned as a Student-at-Law after graduating. Samuel is now practicing as an associate with the firm. Through law school, Samuel was active in his community and in politics: Recently, Samuel initiated a petition which gained support from several MLAs in Edmonton who brought it to the Legislative Assembly of Alberta where it was formally tabled for consideration.
In his personal life, Samuel is an avid fan of the Toronto Raptors, he enjoys staying physically active and is always interested in learning new things about virtually any topic. Samuel recently took up distance running and, in the fall of 2021, completed his first ultra-marathon of 52 km.
