PRESIDENT AND FOUNDER

Samantha Staples

Although not a native, Sam moved to Austin many years ago after a vagabond life as a military brat. She started her planning career as the seminar and convention manager for a bank consulting company, branching out into live music production, lighting design, and venue management. In 2004, after a stint working on major corporate incentive programs, Sam started High Beam with the goal of building a first-class special events company. When she’s not in the office answering questions, you can find Sam somewhere in the world at a lighting festival or hanging with Annabel, the office dog.
