Sam has been writing professionally since early 2018, laying the foundational success for growing websites including, TheGamer, TheTravel, and TheRecipe. However, the Denver, Colorado-native’s knack for writing has been a life-long endeavor. His time spent in corporate positions has helped shape the professional element of his creative writing passion and skills. Beyond writing, Sam is a lover of all things food and video games, which – especially on weekends – are generally mutually exclusive, as he streams his gameplay on Twitch and YouTube under the self-proclaimed, though well-deserved moniker of ChipotleSam.
