SAMIA GOT HITCHED & MOVED TO COLORADO
This is the biggest curveball ever, I know. After twelve years in NYC, I was ready for a big change, preferably one involving mountains and nature and big, expansive skies. When my now-husband, Jonny, decided to enlist in the army as a guitarist in one of their bands, I decided this was a perfect opportunity for me to finally get out of the constant burn-out of New York. We got married in November 2019, and I'm now based in Colorado Springs. I'm represented in Denver by Cassie Keefe, head of On-Camera at Wilhelmina Denver. I love my new life!
In order to get all of my writing in one place, I've started posting all of my essays and articles on Medium.com. If you haven't heard of Medium, it's a wonderful online content platform with countless great articles on every topic under the sun. Check out my work here.
I've also been blogging about sex and relationships on OpenLove101, a fantastic resource for anyone interested in open relationships of any kind. You can read all of my essays here. I write about my personal experiences in polyamorous relationships and give advice for anyone navigating the wonderful world of consensual nonmonogamy.
PODCAST: MAKE AMERICA RELATE AGAIN
Like many in the artistic community, I was shocked into a terrified awareness of our country's political dysfunction after the 2016 election. In response to the deep political despair I was feeling, I decided to pursue a podcast project in which I have compassionate, respectful political conversations with women who voted for Donald Trump. The goal of the conversations is mutual understanding and establishing a real human connection in spite of our differences of opinion. The first season ran throughout summer 2016, and the second season will premiere June 26, 2018. Find the podcast on iTunes, Stitcher, and wherever else you get your podcasts, and follow the show on Twitter and Facebook.
CHANGE THE WORLD MUSIC VIDEO
I released my newest music video for my single Change The World in December 2017. This song is close to my heart - it's about the kind of person I want to be and the effect I want to have on the world around me. Shot in Times Square and Coney Island, New York City, watch the video here.
