In his private time, Samuel enjoys his life to the fullest. He relishes spending time with his family in the great outdoors, playing tennis, and savoring the Swiss mountain air. His heart also beats for balmy evenings and crowded markets in the south of France, good food around large tables surrounded by friends, good music, and trips to foreign countries.
