A Summary of Sam
Right now, I work full-time as an independent graphic designer at The Mentholatum Company in Orchard Park, New York. I'm responsible for the design of packaging, graphic and marketing materials for Softlips® lip balm. I graduated from Villa Maria College in August 2016 with my Bachelor's degree in graphic design and a minor in photography. Alongside my education, I've had the privilege of working at Quinlan as a creative intern in the summer of 2016 and at the University of Buffalo as a marketing intern in the summer of 2014.
So what do I do outside of work? I feel that tells more about a person than their occupation, so I'll give you a glimpse. Outside of my day job, I'm a freelance photographer who's fallen in love with portraits and landscapes (especially when they're combined). I'm delighted by hand lettering and solid typographic solutions. I’m working towards my “46-er” badge: hiking all the High Peaks in the Adirondack Mountains. On Friday nights you'll find me with my watercolor paints and a cup of tea, humming along to Bon Iver. My favorite season is winter and I think Jon Foreman writes incredible music. Most importantly, I love Christ and I want to use all I've been given to make Him known.
