Hi! I'm Sam.
When I'm not producing great content, I write children's paranormal novels, manage a women writers group, & make origami stop motion shorts that are far from perfect.
I also teach yoga/mindfulness designed for creative professionals! You can book 1-on-1 sessions via a simple email. All sessions are donation-based — because mental health & feeling motivated to create great work matters.
Always Something to Make...
If being a writer and producer didn't bring enough joy, I get to collaborate with my director/animator partner, Nick. From music videos & creative branding to animated shorts & live action features. I'll be scouting a location, storyboarding, or script writing most weekends.
Graphic Novels, Too!?
Character creation & research is my favorite part of crafting the story! I conceptualized Wasswa, the albino gorilla, for my FIRST graphic novel to be queried 2022.*

In the last year, the need obsess over the written word led me to work with paper in a new way. Origami became a challenging hobby which in turn became a new art through paper stop motion.
The best opportunity you can give yourself is learning from the brilliant minds you respect and hope to impress. Inspiration can be fleeting but a refined work ethic is invaluable.
