Sam is naturally a homebody and a coward. He fights his nature with blood and bone.


The fight has taken him winging around the US in 30 days; hitchhiking New Zealand for 9 months; and into (and out of) jobs in biochemistry, machine learning, San Fran startups, and the fine arts.


He talks too much.
