  • Samantha is a freelance entertainment writer, critic, and content creator.
  • She has previously written for entertainment sites like Consequence, Alt Press, and Ghouls Magazine.
  • She devotes her free time to pretentiously bringing up her film degree in casual conversation and bragging about being an AMC A-lister.


Samantha's interest in journalism was sparked while working for the SUNY University at Buffalo's student newspaper, The Spectrum, where she led the features and opinion desk. Combining her passion for art, media, and an unused film degree, she began writing reviews and cultural criticisms for various blogs, and she's used this success to catapult her career into the loving arms of various, fan-favorite entertainment publications — or anyone who responds to a pitch email.


Samantha has a BA in English and a BA in film from SUNY University at Buffalo, arguably the snowiest of the SUNY schools.
