Samuel graduated from the City College of New York with a BFA in Film & Video Production. He
later received an MBA in Marketing from California Lutheran University. After spending the last
decade enthralled in Social Services, Creative Management, and Insurance, he embarked on a
journey to bridge the gap between representation and access to education for students of color.
Samuel’s hopes for the foundation’s legacy to be a fixture in the eradication of doubt in students of
color pursuing ANY field of study. He is just as passionate about educating the village, or parents
and guardians to alleviate the burden college can create. In an effort to approach college prep
holistically, he hosts a weekly show entitled "The Ashe Academy's Inspire. Uplift. Engage. Podcast"
which explores culture, identity, career paths, and more.
He is also a Marketing Specialist at Yardi Systems, Inc. working in the Multi-Family Residential
sector, specifically SEO, SEM, and Social Media Management for Luxury Apartment Buildings.
