Samir is a creator and founder of Colin and Samir, LLC and Publish Press - a series of social media channels and a newsletter centered around the creator economy.
In 2012, he started a company called The Lacrosse Network with the goal of building a digital platform and global community for the sport he grew up playing. After 2 years of building the network, it was acquired by Whistle Sports. At Whistle, Samir continued to build The Lacrosse Network while serving as the Director of Partnerships and Programming strategy - working with online creators of all sizes and developing strategies to build audiences and integrate brand partners.
From there, he became an independent producer, creating content of his own with his partner Colin - as well as consulting with creators and brands to build engaged audiences.
Today, he hosts a show about the creator economy on YouTube and is building new projects that focus on helping creators scale their businesses.
