His fascination with the supernatural, the paranormal, cryptozoology and the unexplained has played a huge part in his work since his own childhood experiences growing up on the edge of a forest in England. After a nightly visitation by 'two small Victorian ghost-children and a green fireball' at age seven, shortly after being chased by a giant, seemingly prehistoric dragonfly... Sam's fascination with the unknown became an obsession.
He has been searching for sasquatch in a 'boots on the ground' fashion since 2009, visiting the forests of California, Washington, Oregon, New York and Arizona... in pursuit of the hair-suited!
He regularly appears at various comic-conventions, signing books and prints of his artwork, including New York, Los Angeles and San Diego Comic-Con and has done so for the past eleven years in a row.

He currently resides in Los Angeles.
