“Sam is a dynamic and hilarious speaker who will have you laughing and crying, sometimes in the same breath. He shares from the heart and inspires audiences to live fully with the time they have.”

For Sam, a suicide survivor, every day is filled with an awesome combination of wonder, struggle and possibility. He springs out of bed ready to inspire the world to tell a better story with their lives, a story that is fully and recklessly alive.

Sam is available to speak on a number of topics including Depression and Suicide, Unleashing Your True Self and Why Chasing Big Dreams is the Only Way to Live. (If you have another idea, please contact him below. All topic requests will be considered!)

If you are inviting Sam to speak at a public school, please be assured that as a teacher himself, he understands the sensitive boundaries and will respectfully address his audience without sharing about his faith or religion.
