Hi there!
Thanks for stopping by. I'm Sam – I'm a designer, illustrator, and beer & music lover. I'm currently residing in Burlington, Vermont enjoying my job being a Jr. Graphic Designer for the Boston Beer Company.
Where I'm From
I grew up in sunny Tustin, California, where I stayed until 2014 when I moved to Colorado to pursue my degree in Graphic Design at Colorado State University. After I graduating in 2018, I stayed in Colorado until the Green Mountain State called my name in July, 2022. 
While my passion for art is rooted in illustration, I am fortunate to have experience utilizing a wide range of mediums. From creating mural art, animating digital display ads, creating both digital and traditional paintings, to designing landing pages, I am fortunate to have a wide range experience with different mediums under my belt. 
how i think
I was born as an artist, and an artist I'll stay. I'm a creator, maker, and an appreciator. I appreciate the passions of others and the beauty of the world around me. I think the world is beautiful, and I want to contribute to it. Art brings people together, makes people challenge themselves, and inspires. I am constantly inspired by others, and if I am able to inspire others through my work, that would mean the world to me.
I am so fortune to have picked a career path that allows me to build and grow the skills that matter most to me. I love what I do. There's truly nothing else I would rather be doing than creating art.
My goals
To stay humble, stay inspired, uplift others, and make cool shit that I think rocks.
