The Wild Card

The Wild Card

Whether I'm singing, acting or completely glamming myself up for the fun of it; there's nothing that I'm a stranger to when it comes to presenting myself in some 'unorthodox' way. 

At 14, I began dabbling with music thus a performer was born. When I was 18, I began to perform live whether this be for my college course or, later, performing live solo performances for my first job. My acting, technically, began at 10 years old when I found myself in a large role in the leaver's performance of Fame. 

That gorgeous photo you see? As I'm currently beginning to regrow my hair, it may be slightly innacurate for now but thankfully there are such things as wigs and a lot of patience. If someone ever asked me to summarize myself in a single photo then I would choose this without a second thought. The gruff, gorilla physique mixed with sensitivity and a strong sense of confidence and 'glam' is exactly what I am about. As I said, I am truly the 'wild card'.

  • I was looking through the blog posts they are all interesting but this one stood out to me. I like how you have used a good picture and title! 

  • Fantastic image, Sam! I instantly want to know much more about your practice. I am also enoying the playful tone that is coming through in your written voice. I look forward to seeing how this voice develops with your next blog.

    • I should've chosen a much more recent image but, I can't lie, I think it's an amazing picture so I had to use it!
