My approach is to get students engaged in creating from the get-go!
As a teacher, project development specialist, and artist, my goal is to inspire people to learn through creation.
Whether the skill is writing, making a movie, recording a radio program, or selling art, the most powerful way to learn it is by doing it!
I help people develop successful artistic projects that reflect their own skills, abilities and passions.

One-Day Event Description

B The Difference : A Multi-Media Action Event!

This unique multi-media performance mixes the comfort and entertainment of stand-up comedy along with fun fast-paced videos produced by Sam along with some surprising multi-media “tricks up his sleeve” to bring students to the edge or on top of their seats. B the Difference motivates students to think about their goals and even gives them a secret formula for how to achieve them! Students will watch, laugh, think, use their phones in an interactive treasure hunt, and some might even come to the stage if they are up to an entertaining challenge for all!

I can work with any number of students at a time.
