  • Sam has sat down with filmmakers and actors to conduct interviews for a number of outlets on a wide range of film and television topics, including John Carpenter, Edgar Wright, Robert Rodriguez, Jenna Ortega, and Emilia Clarke.
  • As Sam's expertise has grown, he has traveled to cover pop culture events nationwide, including Comic-Con International in San Diego and New York Comic-Con, as an interviewer, moderator, and panelist.
  • His favorite part about writing for SlashFilm is the balance he's able to strike between covering newer film and television projects with the older and more obscure movies and shows he has long admired.


After writing for Image Comics' preview magazine Image+ from 2016 to 2018, Sam transitioned to writing for Comic Book Resources (CBR) in April 2018. Expanding his expertise to professionally covering film, television, and video games, Sam drew from a lifetime of his own interests and fandom to write news, columns, reviews, and interviews. Sam has since written for Xoop, SVG, and Popverse, covering the biggest news and burning questions from the biggest projects in the entertainment industry. While still writing for CBR and Popverse, he has been writing for /Film since January 2023. Through his academic studies, Sam has learned to read, write, and speak in multiple languages and has worked as a translator on several titles published by Image Comics.


Sam has earned an undergraduate degree in communication studies from Christopher Newport University, focusing on media criticism and rhetorical theory. He has also earned a graduate degree in global affairs, with a concentration in Information technology and media, used to observe trends in global media consumption and usage.
