About the Project


“Experiences in Employee Ownership” is a project Sam developed while performing historical research at and for Chroma Technology Corp. in the Fall of 2016. While Chroma was the primary participant organization, several others were included in the project throughout the Northeast. One of the goals of the project is to highlight the world of employee ownership in ways that realistically shade it with both the bad and the good, the easy and the difficult, and the entirely possible ways that people are currently reshaping our economy.


Sam is part of the class of 2018 at Antioch College and is studying Political Economy, focusing on cooperatives and organizational structure. In the Fall of 2016, Sam worked for Chroma Technology Corp. in Bellows Falls, VT. His internship focused on corporate social responsibility and employee-ownership. It is there and then that Sam engaged in an oral history of the company and several other employee owned companies in the Northeast.

I grew up along the Chesapeake Bay in Maryland, just north of Annapolis. I graduated from high school in 2012; spent two years at Anne Arundel Community College studying philosophy and business administration; and transfered to Antioch College in Yellow Springs, Ohio to study political economy and Spanish. I will graduate in Summer of 2018. In my young adulthood, I have enjoyed a wide range of physical activity: football, track (sprinting, shotput), Tae Kwon Do (10 years, 2nd degree black belt), calisthenics, weight lifting, Olympic lifting and yoga. I have also read and continue to read widely since exiting high school: philosophy, business, politics, economics, sociology, human resources and management, history, human geography, entrepreneurship.
