In my free time, I enjoy traveling, hiking, playing guitar, and watching the Mariners win.


I’m Sam. I have been an amateur videographer and editor for the past five years, but my most recent work experience expanded my skill set from video and photo editing to graphic design, social media management, and copywriting. As a double major in Economics and History from Whitman College, I love engaging with current events and politics, and hope to enroll in law school in the future. Please check out my video portfolio and writing samples, along with my editing and videography reel (see below). Thanks for visiting!

(p.s. I designed this website via WordPress, so while I am not a web designer or developer, I hope you still like it!)
