Samantha is an artist who works in many mediums. Whether it's through music, writing, comedy, acting or makeup, telling stories of our unruly human experiences is her true passion.
She began acting in High School, and starred in her first short film Broken in 2005. She moved to New York City in 2006 where she began studying at the Upright Citizen's Brigade Theater and caught the comedy bug. She made that her home for almost ten years, studying and performing under brilliant people like Billy Merritt, Chris Gethard and Anthony Atamanuik. She was also on an improv house team at The Magnet Theater, and wrote, produced and starred in her own comedy music show, You Can Call Me Gen, at The Creek and The Cave in 2010. She also performed on one of UCB's longest running shows, Cagematch, as the wrestler Lori Mer for years until she left the New York, because she was just so over winters.
She moved to Los Angeles in 2016 and has been regularly performing at theaters such as UCB, The Pack, Flappers and The Clubhouse while working on her music. She also writes and performs voices for The National Lampoon presents: The Final Edition podcast. She has appeared on MTV, Cracked.com and Buzzfeed, and had her writing in McSweeneys. She was a featured performer at both the 2017 Los Angeles Musical Comedy Festival and Packchella.
