Sam was born and raised in Oklahoma, USA before moving North to Chicago, IL where she began her professional media career. With a bachelors degree in Media Arts, she specialized as a 16mm filmmaker before expanding into digital media over 10 years ago. As a former Videographer for various art galleries across Chicagoland, she slowly began to branch out and pursue her passion on her own.

Sams background includes a large variety of videography spanning from weddings, documentaries, music videos, and lifestyle shoots from all across the world. With each new experience, Sam continues to grow and share her enthusiasm with her clients.
In her free time, Sam enjoys spending time in her garden, cooking colorful meals, and exploring new places. When she is not editing, she enjoys watching live music play at her local venues, doing yoga, or drinking endless cups of coffee. She has two cats, Simon & Benji who, when they can, travel along side her. Sam has lived abroad in multiple countries with the most recent being France for the last 3 years.
