ABOUT SAM

 

I live and work out of New York City, where I'm proud to be a visual storyteller in commercial, narrative, and documentary disciplines.  With my fellow filmmakers,

I learn a little bit more about the craft every day.

 

I'm excited to build new working relationships up from the ground into familiar collaborations.  I love finding the inspirations behind each new story, and am grateful for the opportunity to capture it for the screen.
