Sam Purkin grew up in Calgary, Canada. He studied music at world-renowned Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA, and in 1988 graduated Cum Laude with a degree in Music Synthesis and Keyboards. The primary tool used in the Synth program was the brand new Apple Macintosh computer—a Mac Plus.
Sam moved to Los Angeles to pursue a music career, and word got around the music community that Sam was the “go to” guy for anything computer-related: a Mac expert who owned and used the same pro gear. Soon he was working with artists such as Beck, Sheila E, Rickie Lee Jones, and super-Producer, Trevor Horn (Seal, Yes, ABC). As word spread to the Film Music community, Sam worked with greats like Michael Kamen (Lethal Weapon, X-Men), Basil Poledouris (Conan, Robocop), Bruce Broughton (Silverado), and Ira Newborn (Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, Dragnet).
Sam developed his computer business further into Hollywood, providing IT services for Academy Award-winning and nominated movies such as There Will Be Blood, Magnolia, Catch Me If You Can, Punch Drunk Love, and Lions for Lambs, to name a few. His client list includes top writers, producers, directors and actors in the Film Industry.
Sam & Company was formed in 2008.
Sam, “The Gallery Guy,” became a premiere computer advisor to the Art Gallery business, supporting Art Consultants and Galleries from coast to coast.
Sam’s passion for technology, as well as his friendly and patient personality, makes clients enjoy working with him and trust him with their private information. He understands the dependence they have on their devices, and the importance of keeping them current, backed up, and properly maintained.
