From 2007 to 2010, Shammas went to the University of South Florida where he earned a degree in mechanical engineering, after which he attended the University of Tampa to get his Bachelor of Science in finance from 2010 to 2012. This led him to work at BNP Paribas Wealth Management, before entering his role with Credit Suisse in 2018.
