bio

I’m Sam. Nice to meet you! I’m a Brooklyn-based writer and editor. I work as an Editorial Assistant at Viacom’s LGBTQ brand, Logo, where I manage daily administrative tasks, assist senior editors with video production and long-term multimedia projects, and report on LGBTQ news and culture. (I’m also the lifeblood of our workplace Slack channel, but my colleagues tell me I shouldn’t lead with that one when I describe what I do.)

I studied Journalism and Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies at SUNY New Paltz and presented the findings of my senior thesis on trans representation in magazines at the National Communication Association (NCA) annual conference in November 2018. I also interned with the prestigious American Society of Magazine Editors (ASME). My original reporting, op-eds, and first-person essays have appeared in print or online at Vice, Healthline, Yahoo Lifestyle, The Riveter, Hudson Valley MagazineChronogram magazine, VISITvortex Hudson Valley, and more. When I’m not writing, editing, or reading, I can usually be found drinking iced coffee or getting tattooed somewhere in New York City.

Oh—I’m funny on Twitter sometimes, too. I’ll let you be the judge.
