Hi I'm Sam

I am an animator, a professor, a father, a husband, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I currently teach animation 2 days a week and spend the rest of my work week designing and animating things with my studio, we make cartoons and games for various clients. I have always loved to draw, for me its another way I can communicate with people, after all they say a picture is worth a thousand words... It hasn't always been easy being an artist, but I love looking at the world and analyzing all of its parts, being an artist you tend to look at the world and try to see it for what it is and capture some of that. I am a pretty good artist not to sound conceited but I am always amazed when I look at my kids and think to myself, "wow--I help make those." I can see myself in them, and I can see so much more when I look at them. They are quite a handful but man they are great.

Why I am a Mormon

My family is really important to me, I love them a lot. I know that through the gospel of Jesus Christ we can be with our families for ever, and truly have lasting relationships, living his gospel gives us a fondation on how to act and treat one another. His gospel teaches us to be kind and help others, and to serve those that need serving. His gospel teaches me to not take offense and to lift others.

How I live my faith

I have been able to move a lot in my life and meet thousands of people, I try and follow the gospel of Jesus Christ by being a friend to everyone I meet, sometimes it becomes overwhelming but by being genuinely interested in everyone and their well being makes it easier, it also makes me a better artist in capturing the human element in my work, I have found as we help others, serve with them, listen to them we begin to understand them and even love them, it is in those moments when I wonder if in some small way that helps me understand our savior more, he listens to us, he helps us, he understands us, and loves us.
