text from his website:
"In 2003 Sam landed his first professional gig, writing music for Tommy Tallarico for the Capcom title Maximo vs. Army of Zin. He spent subsequent years working on smaller projects and honing his skills, but his big break came in 2007, when he was brought on to co-write the critically acclaimed score for Mass Effect alongside Jack Wall. He penned various memorable pieces such as the main theme, “From the Wreckage,” “Sovereign’s Theme,” “Victory,” “Uplink,” and many more. When production began on the highly anticipated Mass Effect 2, he was again tapped for his adept skill of inventive blending of analog synths with symphonic orchestra. The composers crafted a suitably darker and more cinematic musical experience to complement the heavier subject matter contained in the sequel.
After enjoying the collaborative process on the Mass Effect franchise, in 2010 Sam branched out and signed his first contract as sole composer, writing ninety minutes of classical-influenced orchestral score for Red Orchestra 2: Heroes of Stalingrad. Tripwire Interactive chose Sam for his innate ability to inject powerful emotion into his music and create memorable themes that stand the test of time.
In his leisure time, Sam enjoys photography, good food, cooking and, of course, gaming. He currently resides in Chicago and has a close-knit group of family and friends."
