HI MY NAME IS SAM

About   Contact   


I had a professor my last semester of college who assigned “This is Water” by David Foster Wallace to analyze. He spoke of blind certainty, unconscious worship, and the ability to think. The ability to think. This skill caught me off guard because certainly everyone who has a brain can think. However, throughout my semester with this professor I realized that making conscious decisions was much more difficult than I assumed, but when done correctly I felt the most amazing feeling of steady control over my own life. Therefore, after much research and thought I’ve decided the only way to become a true believer in my craft would be to attend a school that specializes in exactly what I want to do.

For a brief moment in time I lived in Ridgefield, Connecticut, a commuter town off the highway to New York filled with executives and their families. Four seasons, glowing school district, friendly neighbors, and not a single corner of rebellious disruption; I didn’t exactly fit in. I spent a majority of my childhood in Miami, FL, where I experienced the unruliness of gentrification and a community filled with the eagerness to reach the American dream. And then, I made my way to university in Orlando, FL. Throughout a childhood of awkward displacement, I do feel like this destination became my eventual home. From Mills ave where people aren’t how you expect them to be to Austin’s coffee shop, a place where talent is subjective and judgment is kind, Orlando was a place where I was encouraged and welcomed to be the truest version of myself.

The best way to enjoy a music festival is to checkout the art and completely miss the music…haaa
The girl who was painting the tiger would disassemble her station and go from stage to stage continuing the painting based on the sway of the songs being played. So cool!
