hey, i'm sam

i’m a recent grad of southern methodist university with a b.a. in creative advertising and fashion media and minors in graphic design and photography. i was a competitive swimmer for 14 years, until my recent retirement this past February. now i fill my time practicing as a baby yogi and exploring dry land.

in my short 22 years of life, i have come to realize a few things.

first, it's important to eat a little chocolate every day. this is mostly because i once read on Facebook that chocolate is healthy for you.

second, empathy is one of the most important things  -professionally and personally. through empathy, you can think of a brand as a person telling a story. through that story, people - and therefore brands - can connect. and connecting to one another is one of the most inspiring things to me.

third, when traveling anywhere new, go to a local grocery. i've found this is one of the best ways to get a sense for a community. and it's a good excuse to grab a snack.

with all of that, i'm continually looking to explore and adapt, while adding to my small list of life tips. i've lived (at least briefly) everywhere from my home state of Indiana to Dallas, NYC, and Arkansas, and looking forward to adding to the list.
