Sammy is an investigative reporter from Bedford Hills, NY. Sammy's reporting has often focused on allegations of sexual harassment, misconduct and assault in higher education and the performing arts. His investigative reporting career began in 2018 when he uncovered four decades of sexual assault allegations against a then-department chair, youth program director and former associate dean in his music school. Sammy has since reported on allegations of sexual misconduct at The Juilliard School, the New York Philharmonic, the University of Michigan and the University of Texas at Austin. In 2021, while an intern at the Investigative Reporting Workshop, Sammy contributed to The Washington Post's Pulitzer Prize-winning reporting about the January 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol.

Sammy is currently the lead reporter on a long-term investigation into the disciplinary files of law enforcement agencies throughout New York State. This reporting is supported by MuckRock, the Fund for Investigative Journalism; initially reporting about the disciplinary files of the New York City Department of Homeless Services has been published by New York Focus. Sammy is also a researcher at Azmat Khan's Li Center for Global Journalism at the Columbia Journalism School. (Sammy is a 2023 graduate of the Toni Stabile for Investigative Journalism at the Columbia Journalism School.) 

An occasional composer and aspiring playwright, Sammy's music has been recognized by the American Composers Forum, the Foundation for Modern Music and the National Association for Music Education. A 2022 graduate of the University of Michigan's School of Music, Theatre & Dance, Sammy was a two-time participant in the Blank Space Workshop. Recent projects include Diseducated, Fifth Avenue and The Bachelor: The Musical, all co-written with Allison Taylor. Sammy is currently working with Professor Harry Castle on a musical, State of Motion, that will be premiered at Syracuse University in May.
