My self-summary
Hi! My name's Sam. I'm originally from Chicago. I recently moved back to LA after living in Denver for a year. I'm a game designer and artist. Career-oriented and successful at what I do. Gamer, artsy, atheist, centrist liberal, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm currently working on an underwater exploration video game called Abzu. I've been a 3d artist for seven years, worked at Nickelodeon for two of those years and in video games the other five. Now I'm a video game level designer. Life is good.
I’m really good at
I'm good at 3D, drawing, following recipes, eating slowly, being the best DJ in my living room, finding redeeming qualities in bad movies.
The first things people usually notice about me
When I meet someone new, I'm generally pretty low-key, friendly and approachable. With my good friends I'm crass and ridiculous.

I'm a mix of introvert and extrovert.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: novels by Haruki Murakami. Bertrand Russel philosophy. Richard Dawkins and Christopher Hitchens stuff. I've been listening to a lot of audiobooks lately...

Graphic novels: Shortcomings, Summer Blonde and 32 Stories by Adrian Tomine. Blackhole by Charles Burns. Blankets and Goodbye Chunky Rice, Habibi by Craig Thompson.

Movies: generally, intelligently crafted films with coherent themes, films that make me laugh, and mindless action flicks.

music: I really love soulful house music although lately I've been getting into the harsher sounds of electro and some indie rock. I also really like jazz and the nostalgia of 90's alternative. I like everything.

games: I play a lot of video games. It's part of my job. It's "research".
The six things I could never do without
Friends, Music, Eggs Benedict, Video games, phone, reddit.
On a typical Friday night I am
catching up with friends over a beer.
