Sam Fullerton is co-owner and Senior Mobile Technician at Midwest Phone Lab. He's the shop's resident phone and tablet whisperer. Though he has only spent 4 years in the repair industry, his track record for bringing devices back from the brink of death speaks for itself, and his passion for electronics has expanded over 2 decades. His years of experience as a labor organizer and union educator have shaped his belief that transparency and honesty in the workplace should never take a back seat. As a Right To Repair activist he is driven to demystify the repair process and help customers understand what's going on inside of their proprietary devices, why devices fail, and what repairs should actually cost the user. In his free time, Sam is an avid movie lover and patron of the local music scene. He enjoys hacking retro toys and turning junk electronics into bizarre and impractical smart home devices. He dislikes writing bio blurbs in the third person, but sometimes that can't be avoided.
