"Stories tell us who we are, but more importantly who we could be..."

Sam has spent the last five years studying screenwriting, attempting to blend character and plot development into an emotional mix of deep story. In 2007, Sam was approached to develop a script from a first act for a short feature White Devil for director Anthony Jarman.

Over the last few years, Sam has written four feature screenplays, a number of short films and a web series, before writing his first stage play in the winter of 2012. In the autumn of 2010, Sam was commissioned to write the screenplay for feature-length drama Minimum Sentence, which is currently in preproduction.

For several years, Sam has worked as script and story consultant on a number or productions for stage and screen, including with long-term collaborator Scott Kingsnorth.
