My name is Sam.


I love the peacekeeping capacity of human compassion. 

Some of the most memorable moments of my life happened at the crossroads of voices and ears in a conversation, where a tense conflict turned into a beautiful understanding.

Filmmaking allows me to express this love, by sharing stories about the world and the individuals who inhabit it. I get to start conversations with strangers and get to know the world from their side of things.

I'm a 21-year-old advertising student at Drake University in Des Moines, the capital of Iowa. I've been telling stories ever since I got my hands on an 8mm camcorder when I was 12. Back then, they were stop motion videos and musical remixes. Nowadays, I make films for businesses, universities, and non-profits. I make TV commercials, short documentaries, music videos, wedding films, and films about my adventures in life. Check out my resume for the full list.
