After graduating from the Savannah College of Art and Design with a focus in Sequential Art, Sam went on to work on and develop a number of animated cable TV shows. After living a crazy life for the networks Sam decided to focus on his own projects and finish his Masters animation. While going to school Sam couldn’t stay away from the biz and got caught up with Green Shoe Animation working on projects for Disney like Marvel’s Avengers Alliance Facebook Game, and SMOSH’s Shut Up Cartoons Like Krogzilla as well as many other things. Sam specializes in developing shows for animation, story art and visual development and currently is finishing his card game based on the comic he is working on ROBOT COWBOY SAMURAI.
