Murray Sampson on Superpeer
Professional Bookseller with two decades experience
I began working in bookstores in 2001 and have worked for stores large and small. I now help stores with their websites and e-commerce, while also running my own online services and store. My experience in the industry includes college stores, one of the largest independent stores in the world, a mid-sized independent in Seattle, and my own online sales. I hold a Master of Library and Information Science from the University of Washington and between bookstore jobs have spent time working in libraries. The random fun fact I like to share is that I worked for a year at a fine art bronze foundry. I helped make the only piece of modern art ever displayed in the Getty Villa, and sculptures I had a hand in can be found all over the world, from San Fransisco, CA, to Boras, Sweden. There's even one floating around on a cruise ship! You can check out my podcast at https://bookselling.show and see more about my technical services at https://bookselling.tech.
