Sam (he/him) is the Associate Director at Weaving Earth. He was born and raised in Washington, D.C. (Nacotchtank territory) and currently resides as a white settler on unceded/occupied Southern Pomo territory. His lineage is northern european—scottish, irish, british, german, and french. He is dedicated to a future in which human beings live beyond separation and domination and is continually examining with humility what that asks of him today.
In addition to his role on the Executive Team, Sam has worked on the Teaching Team for the WE Immersion and as a guide for youth and teen programs. He is a certified Wilderness First Responder and a devoted student of birdsong, animal tracks, and fire-making. He also maintains a deep personal commitment to racial justice, which has evolved over the years into a responsibility to understanding how interlocking systems of oppression shape his reality and societal advantages, and what to do about it. Additional passions include martial arts (Aikido), music-making (guitar), writing, and figuring out how things work.
