A visual artist with a passion for aesthetic experimentation, Sam thrives on the process of researching, adapting to, and developing unique visual styles for the purpose of any project, always working to broaden their stylistic skillset. Sam has experience in several industries including Animation, Game Development, and Graphic Design. After completing their Animation BFA at SCAD, and tenure at the helm of the Creative Department at a Brooklyn craft & import beer distributor, they moved on to earn their MA from San Francisco's esteemed Academy of Art University, focusing on Concept Art and Visual Development.

Sam is currently based in the LA Area as a Vis Dev & Lead Environment/Props Concept Artist for a startup 3D puzzle-adventure game.

Outside of work, they are likely still drawing everything in sight, travelling to an Ultimate Frisbee tournament, running the taps at a local brewery, or eating entirely too many mozzarella sticks for their own good.

A strong, collaborative and creative energy propels both their work and their life.
