His open-form calligraphy, artworks, and writing have appeared in various journals and galleries. Sam is a poet in the periphery, a multimedia artist, field recordist, and an amateur radio operator. He’s read for PEN International, city government events, and is currently an artist-in-residence at the Portland Chinatown Museum.
