Sam is a social butterfly, but not a fickle butterfly. He loves meeting and getting to know new people, and he places a lot of value in his relationships. Currently he is a senior at SCAD in Atlanta, studying Branded Entertainment, Advertising, and Television Production. He is passionate about storytelling and the interconnectivity of combined stories. He believes art has the ability to inspire and change the lives of those who encounter it. He volunteers as the President of the LGBT Student Organization at SCAD, and is passionate about creating spaces where inclusivity, respect, and dialogue are fostered. When he has free time, you may find him exploring a new coffee shop, chilling at Piedmont Park, or at his favorite piano bar. He’s always down for an adventure and trying something new, be it yoga, a symphony concert, painting a mural, or a spontaneous photoshoot in Little 5 Points.
His life quote is, “My mission in life is not merely to survive but to thrive. And to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style.” - Maya Angelou
