Hi! I'm Sam.
I'm a freelance writer specializing in society & culture, cannabis, sustainability, veganism, feminism, social justice, pop culture, and media.
I'm passionate about a lot of things – but I haven't always known exactly how to channel those passions. I've tried and failed a lot.
All I've ever known is that there's always been a fire inside of me to help people, create change, and spread the word about the things I believe are the most important: taking care of the environment, taking care of others, and taking care of yourself.
During my 10+ years of trying and failing, I worked retail, waited tables, and served drinks – but nothing made sense until I started White Ember Writing in 2018.
Since then, I've been able to channel my passions into a successful freelance career and have been privileged to write on an international level about the things I care about the most: politics, women's rights, LGBTQ+ rights, racial inequality, vegan nutrition, pet wellness, wildlife education, environmental conservation, and the cannabis industry.
(I do write about fun stuff sometimes, too – I've also written about pop culture, music, movies, TV, gaming, and other miscellaneous, nerdy shit.)
