Sam is the CEO and Co-founder of AcquiredMinds.
Sam was 16 when he was struck with an unknown brain injury. This presented itself in many symptoms including, a shuffled gate, paranoia, rapid speech and a loss in executive functions. Over many months in Frenchay hospital, Sam endured thousands of tests, to little outcome.
Subsequently, he has been left with Parkinsonism’s and a speech impediment.
However, through this, he has successfully carried on in education, graduating from Wells way sixth form then gaining a 2:1 at Bath spa university in film and screen studies. He also recently completed a masters degree at the university of Bristol in the same subject.
Kane Baker and Sam set up AcquiredMinds in order to link those under 50’s who’ve had any form of brain injury.
