About Samuel

I climbed out of a KEM and hope to be buried in a sprocket, but making the best of a video life in between.

I am a screenwriter, film director, and film editor. My work Hold For Release and Knockaround Kids is available on Amazon Prime. My short film Beautifulese is on Vimeo. As an Editor, I've completed several narrative feature films and one feature documentary.

When I'm not writing, I love reading, composing music, field recording, and collecting cultural analog.
