Hi! I’m Sam.
Over the course of my three years working with EWC, I’ve written 250+ articles on a wide range of topics, from stinging slugs to the power of ballet in favelas, not to mention the countless stories celebrating the work people are doing in science and technology that can enhance all of our lives. (You can browse my articles if you scroll down!) I began my time here as an intern in 2016 while working towards my degree in Communications from Suffolk University. And now, 3 years later, I’m the Chief Curator and Editor and my view of the world has changed entirely, with different possibilities coming at me daily.
Even with all of this writing, it’s still hard to write about myself. So, here’s what my boss has to say about me:
“Sam has brought a mastery of connection to EWC that is celebrated in every article she touches, and in every aspect of our visitor experiences. She is exceptionally gifted at wearing many hats, fluidly moving through every day from writing, research and business decision making, to diving deep into conversations with the thought leaders in our orbit. Most importantly Sam is an expert in going from “mind & heart”—on any topic—to the printed word that makes us all soar!
Sam is also a superlative “shape-shifter”, so open to everything that she seems always in the process of becoming something radiant and new. The sparkle she brings to every new person she meets is a gift we are inspired by every day and we are proud to see all the ways it has infused EWC with that same light for 3 years. She had been instrumental in our quest to find the common threads that connect us all.”
While I’m not in the office, you can find me hunched over a table working on a new carving, printing and covered in ink, walking in the woods, at a show, dancing, building a meditation practice, eating bagels, or going on a long drive with the goal of getting lost.
If you see me at a party, ask me about:
- The two times I’ve fallen through a floor
- My grandmother and the raccoons
- The book I’m reading
Contact me if you…
- Have a great short film you’d like to pitch for us to feature on the site (and maybe you’d like to write the article around it!)
- Think your film would be a great fit for Amazing World Media
- Find a typo! Anywhere!
- Came across a really cool fact or took a sweet bug photo and you just gotta share
