I'm Sam.

Graduate from Stony Brook University with English and Political Science degrees.

I like to learn. Teach me anything, and we will be friends. Languages are a special interest: I know French and Latin, a little bit of Japanese and Italian. Let's have a party and speak to each other in tongues.

I shoot with a Nikon D3000 and an older Pentax. You will usually find me with a camera wherever I go. Also, a pen and notebook for stray thoughts.

I fight fires as a volunteer. There is nothing more rewarding; I recommend everyone try it out.

I live on a barrier island called Fire Island (off of LI), and am a pretty stereotypical Islander, which I would like to call the four S living: Surfing, Smoking, Swimming, Sex(ing).

My life, how I live it, and my thinking has radically changed in the past couple of months. And I like it.

I live two miles from an abandoned plantation house. Almost identical to this.

ransom and i got married several months ago in an intimate ceremony, but recently had a larger reception for more family and friends, and it was a blast! as we’re both writers, it seemed fitting to have the event at one of our favorite bookstores: the last bookstore in downtown LA. we’ve had a lot of requests for photos, so i thought i’d drop a few here. hope you enjoy them as much as we do! 

:::for the especially curious:::

my bouquet: was made from the pages of ransom’s novel (miss peregrine’s home for peculiar children).

our photographers: brandon + katrina of brandon wong photography.

venue: the last bookstore in downtown los angeles.

catering: the extremely fabulous heirloomla.

flowers: from floral art!

rentals: furniture from found rentals, dishes from dishwish!

the band: one of our favorite local indie bands, the gallery.

hugs and books!

Back tattoo

I personally have no plans to get any tattoos.  Not my style.  But this is super amazing!

You can probably get this done in henna and it’s not permanent.
