“Samantha is enviably focused. Her writing is crisp, confident, and convincing.”

Tim Kreider


We Learn Nothing and I Wrote This Because I Love You

"Sam is a writer in the mold of Nicholas Kristof, finding individual stories to give a human face to bigger issues. Her writing combines the observational and storytelling skill of a personal essayist with the lucid style of a reporter. What elevates her work above the norm is not only the scrupulous attention she devotes to her prose but the passion she invests in her subjects."

Tracy Simon



"Samantha has been an ongoing resource for my public relations business. She has the unique ability to break down dense academic research to its essence. Without her help I couldn't keep the trains moving." 

"I am drawn to Sam's work because of her quiet comedic wit and her ability to execute seemingly impossible writing tasks overnight.

Adam Felber


Panelist, NPR's Wait Wait... Don't Tell Me!

"Sam is super-astute, with an ability to absorb godawful reams of information and distill it down to something friendly and approachable. And she works quickly, to boot!"

Chris Kelly


"With her exhaustive research and insightful writing, Samantha has made invaluable contributions to Real Time with Bill Maher."
