About Me

Hello, I’m Sam. I’m twenty-six, American and I like to do things. Things like travel, write and surf. I even dabble in web design, I made this website myself. I’ve been all over the world although I particularly enjoy the Philippines, Germany and Ukraine.

Generally I write non-fiction but that might change in the future. A few of my favorite authors are Cormac McCarthy, F. Scott Fitzgerald and Neal Stephenson. I read fifty or sixty books a year. If you’d like to know a bit more about me you can click here.
