Letters from home – Sam Meek of Sandboxx in The Spotlight

Sam meek sandboxx


Sam Meek is the Co-Founder and CEO of Sandboxx.

Growing up in Sun Valley, ID, Sam learned to ski and spent countless hours outdoors.

He also grew up in a family of Marines. Sam almost always knew he too would become a Marine. So, when the Towers fell on 9-11, he enlisted and headed off to Pariss Island. Sam had two deployments, the second to Fallujah, where a non-combat injury and recovery brought him back to the States.

Sam left the Marine Corps after five years.

While trying to determine his next step, Sam started caddying. A golf course conversation led to an interview and a job on Wall Street working for a hedge fund…sometimes showing up makes all the difference.

That happenstance meeting really started Sam on the path to Sandboxx – it really is funny how our lives make so much more sense in hindsight.
