Member Spotlight: Sam McClure

Roots:
I am a gypsy, having grown up in Brussels, the Philippines and London before moving to the US in high school. In the US, I’ve lived in Connecticut, New York, Boston, Seattle, Miami and Chicago. I’ve been in Austin for 25 years, which is hard to believe given the transient nature of the first half of my life.

Family life:
I’m married to Tim, and we have two magnificent children, Madison (23) and Ian (21).

Work life:
Travel Advisor, owner of Small World Travel

The biggest lesson I’ve learned through my iGnite experience…
I am so inspired by all of the iGnite leaders and have learned that it’s never to late to find your strength.

The best advice I’ve been given…
My family has a motto: “If you never go, you never know.” I’m not sure who started it, but we pretty much live by it.

I am looking forward to…
A surprise (to Tim, I of course have planned every detail) 25th Anniversary trip to Europe in April. It’s a secret, but it involves the Venice Simplon Orient Express train from Venice to Paris.

My celebrity look alike is…
I’ve been told Audrey Hepburn. Not quite sure she’d agree, but she was so elegant and a beautiful humanitarian, that I would certainly like to emulate her.
