About Us

Portrait of Sam Hess, owner and operator of Grow Modern AV.

Hi there! My name is Sam Hess and I’m the proud owner of Grow Modern AV. I’ve got to admit, I am passionate about what we do here. Every time I receive a call from a customer asking for a quote, I get all excited. If I seem intense about this, well, you’re correct!

“It all started by accident, I had no idea that you could turn on lights with your iPhone. But as soon as I found out, I was hooked! A good friend of mine works as an Interior Designer, she showed me the wonders of automation on her projects. I was immediately inspired.

Portrait of Sam and his dog SpotIf you were to ask me what my dream job was back then, I’d say woodworking, a skateboarder, or a clothing designer. And you know what, those interests are still very much a part of my life today. In fact, I hope to one day have the time to make my own clothes Remodel a home or build some cool furniture.

And last but not least, I’m a proud dog dad to my nearly 2-year-old German Shorthaired Pointer named Spot. He loves eating, watching others eat, playing basketball and soccer ( no joke ) and of course, napping. Having Spot in my life has been a wonderful change and I’m always more than happy to share stories and pictures of him.
