About Sam

Globetrotting deep-nerd gamer with a penchant for bugs, punk and retro chic. Queen West exterior, wickedly-funny and resourceful interior. Guaranteed to have the coolest punk playlist in the studio.

  • My apartment has been described as a “50s Americana bug mausoleum”.
  • My favourite graphic novel is Black Hole.
