Sam's most famous picture

Sam arrived at the college in October 1998, and is still here - although he is a staff member now so at least he can buy a Round. Obviously his Staff status prevents him both from playing an active part in the Union and becoming an object of discussion, but not from rampant self-publicity. He's not often seen around Beit Towers now, preferring to avoid "those pesky kids".

Known to many older hacks as Baldy (a term of affection first coined by Arif, Mustafa), he was responsible for the Union Web Server for many years and quite frequently broke it. He was also a Sabbatical Officer (DPCS) in 2000-2001 and can often be heard ranting about how much more work Sabbaticals did in his day.
