I’m Samantha. My friends call me Sam and baristas call me “Sim.” I live in New York City, am the social media producer for Matador Network, do comedy and acting on the side, and occasionally try to build up the inspiration to write some screenplays I have in the works. I have an affinity for traveling the world, watching British comedy, making people laugh, dancing alone in my room, dressing fashionably, and attempting to make Pinterest crafts (usually with disastrous end results). View my portfolio and photography gallery or hire me for freelance work.
For the first 18 years of my life, I was stuck on a tiny island in the Pacific Northwest and my family didn't travel at all. From 2009 to 2011, I was at university only an hour and a half away from home. Then in September of 2011, my life changed. After years of building up my Anglophile obsession, I finally got a chance to study abroad in England. Those three months changed my entire life. While they were tough and I missed my home, I got to experience a new culture and travel around Europe a bit.
After returning home, I knew my travel days were far from over. The next year I went back to Europe twice. After graduating college in 2013, I headed down to Los Angeles for three months to try out something new. But even that wasn’t enough. I needed more. In September 2014, I packed all my belongings and moved to London to attend a creative writing program and travel as much as possible. This blog was born from that journey and I’ve kept it up ever since.
Since April 2015, I’ve lived in New York City, and that in itself has been an adventure. I started a career in social media and content creation that led me to work for a celebrity for awhile before eventually finding my way into freelance gigs and becoming a part-time digital nomad who spends equal amounts of time outside NYC as I do there.
My main goal is to see the entire world and keep my life as interesting as possible so I have no regrets when I’m old. On this blog you’ll find a mixture of my many interests; travel, photography, fashion, entertainment and other lifestyle topics.
