Hi, I'm Sam. I am a marketing specialist, photographer, and small business owner from Nantucket Island, now in Boston, MA.
I have experience in photography and marketing with various clients and organizations throughout the Massachusetts area and have a passion for house plants, Boston sports, and crafting.
My wsamnipat marketing and photography side hustle sprouted (like my plant obsession) my craft projects during the COVID-19 Pandemic when my art started to accumulate all over my apartment. I grew up constantly making things so an abundance of artwork taking over the living room was nothing new.
I learned how to run a small business from my parents who owned and operated a little convenience store on Nantucket. From working at Lucky's throughout my childhood to making and selling beaded bracelets to my classmates for $1 (to donate to Thailand after the 2004 earthquake and tsunami!), I've always kept myself busy.
After the increased racial attacks towards the AAPI community during the Pandemic, a portion of monthly wsamnipat proceeds are donated to organizations dedicated to helping the Asian community and to stopping AAPI hate. To date, we have donated over $2000 together!
Outside of my small business, I work as a Marketing Manager for Sports Reference, am a grad student getting my MBA at Hult International Business School, and enjoy short walks to the nearest pizza place and binge-watching the Hallmark Channel.
