Sammy Gulley can be described as modest. He is a humble guy from Meridian, MS by way of Yonkers, NY. He’s a husband, a father of two, a wine aficionado, and so much more. He was raised by his mother along with his two sisters. There, he learned valuable life lessons that prepared him for life.

After finishing high school, he enlisted in the US Navy and served his country for eight years. After he got out of the Navy, he began working as a civilian over in Okinawa Japan. After leaving Okinawa he moved back to the United States to Virginia and got a job working at the Naval Medical Center Portsmouth. He started as a trainer/SA (System Administrator) for DOD EHR Essentris, and was later promoted to the leading System Administrator.

Today, Sammy is the owner of PaperboyFly Clothing, a fashion apparel line of T-shirts, sweaters, crop tops, sweater dresses and more. He will be adding suits and other items down the road to make his catalog more well-rounded and give customers that full fledge PaperboyFly experience.

Sammy started to get more into fashion shortly after leaving the military. “I couldn’t wear a uniform anymore so I had to put more effort into what I wore. I would always get compliments on how I dressed and the combinations I put together. Once I got to Naval Medical Center Portsmouth, the compliments kept coming and I thought maybe I can turn this into something. People would ask if I ever thought about having my own clothing line and I would respond “no”. However as time went on the idea began to grow on me. I would always wear paperboy hats from years ago and so I thought the way I dressed was fly that I put two and two together, and came up with PaperboyFly,” he says.

As the owner of a fashion apparel company, Sammy says he loves being able to see his ideas come to life. “Seeing others excited about my brand and the possibilities that we have in front of us, and being able to show my children that they can also be owners of their own companies is what it’s all about,” he says. “I find that I get inspiration from so many sources. Whether from my family, friends, colleagues, or neighbors. I’m inspired by other fashion icons and brands
