Sam grew up in a small West Texas town, where the stark, picturesque surroundings fostered an appreciation for shape and form. His interest in design prompted him to study architecture at Texas Tech University.
Opportunities in the fashion industry lead Sam to travel and work in exotic locations and experience other cultures. His travels to Japan and Asia were to be of specific influence on his evolution as an artist. This exposure drew him to make the diverse urban setting of Houston Texas his home.
His techniques in woodworking and furniture-making are evident in his abstract creations.
"Reconstruction" is a word I've used to describe my style. As a child I was always taking things apart and rearranging them to suit my sensibility."
