I specialize in strategic marketing and editorial solutions for non-profits. No matter what the medium, design should communicate and clarify your mission. I work with writers, editors and photographers to make sure your message is delivered clearly to your audience—wherever they see it. I've been Art Director of Preservation magazine, developed solid studio experience doing everything from branding and advertising to redesigns, and worked in-house for non-profits. For seven years, I helped to define and develop the identity of The Shakespeare Theatre, designing everything from invitations to each show's identity. I have special insight into the challenges faced by non-profits and arts organizations, and know the passion and commitment shared by those working for a common cause. I see good design as a partnership—one that requires communication and intelligent solutions. I hope we can work together.

Hello, my name is Sam! I am an aspiring singer and songwriter. I have been singing since I was 2 and writing songs and poetry since I was 8. Since then, I have performed in countless shows, and written countless songs, all by myself. I have also released 2 full length songs all produced and written by me. Aside from my original work, I am also a Michael Jackson impersonator. I have impersonated him at many of my school shows, and parties as well. In general, singing, songwriting, and music production is my powerhouse, along with dancing and acting. I have only started to work on fiction writing, screenwriting, and script writing about a year or two ago so I am not as good in those as the musical directories, but still good enough to make something appealing. In fact, I had a whole class dedicated to creative writing in 11th grade and was one of the best students, according to the teacher. I always gave more than what was needed, and had no problem doing that because of my love and passion for creative writing. Many people, including teachers, have said that I am highly creative and talented, and that I have a bright future ahead of me, particularly in the music industry. I have looked through the Directories list several times and picked only what I know I am the very best in, and am willing to give it my all to make you satisfied with the end result.
