Sam Solomon is an Entrepreneur, Talk Show Host & Wine Enthusiast.
Welcome to my humble little space on the internet. Here you will find my musings, rants and assertions.
When people ask what I do I tell them that, “I build things on the internet.” That is the socially acceptable answer, and one that requires the least bit of explanation. There is more, of course, but you already knew that. Didn’t you?
Likely, you meandered here from one of my interviews. If not, you should know that I started a publication called Signal Tower, where I have conversations with entrepreneurs, designers, writers and people creating brilliant things. It is an enjoyable project, and a tool that has allowed me to interact with people far more interesting than I.
My free time is spent designing, writing and developing. I have a voracious appetite for knowledge, and spend a huge amount of time reading—especially about education and entrepreneurship. I rarely watch TV. There aren’t enough hours in the day as it is, so I’ve lobbied not to spend time watching The Kardashians.
While I’m lesser known for it, I’m a senior interactive producer for an ad agency down on the gulf coast called Red Square. There I lead digital projects for gaming and casino clients. We tinker with websites, applications, games—you name it.
I first became acquainted with the idea of being an entrepreneur, while in college. I started FRUGGL, a small coupon business that taught me several valuable lessons. After college I worked for CrowdFunder, which led the charge to change the way startups are financed. Then I worked for drchrono, a Y-Combinator healthcare startup aiming to make the iPad the main piece of hardware in every doctor’s office.
In 2012 I left for Chicago to join The Starter League, a web development school taught at 37signals (now Basecamp). During my time there I designed, and built the front-end for Mountain Metrics an analytics platform for Tumblr.
