Samantha J. Evans better known as Sam, regularly prefers not to limit her identity. She credits her favorite freedom: the ability to create, and the physical realization of many others to staying true to herself along life’s journey. Samantha’s unwillingness to be contained has also contributed to her exceptionally curious and unconventional resume. This includes experiences like field interviewing in support of research and development projects, photography, and a brief, but very enlightening year at a local gun club. Although the idea of diversity and exploration has been a reoccurring theme in her life, she has made Colorado her permanent place of residence, and has been enjoying the lifestyle ever since. Peering into aspects not initially visible about Samantha, offer a powerful combination of quirks; only to be described as profound complexities, that reinforce her passion for “peopling” and in some cases altruistic behavior. Samantha ultimately aspires to create the form that will bond all her multifaceted inspirations to help the World become more excellent.
