Sam is currently a student at Southern Methodist University in Dallas studying Biology and Musical Theatre. Though he grew up performing and dancing in shows in Kansas City, since coming to Dallas he has become more involved in choreography, direction, and production. Recent projects include assisting with choreography on Public Works Dallas's inaugural production of "The Tempest" at Dallas Theatre Center, as well as producing and choreographing SMU's 24 Hour Musical series. Sam's academic interests focus on the intersection of Science and Art, specifically, how theatre and medicine can inform each other.
