Sam's professional work in media is complemented by a parallel career in art and performance. In the early 90's, Sam lived in San Diego and was a member of Crash Worship. From 2005 to 2010, Sam was a principal owner of Monkey Town in Williamsburg, Brooklyn NYC, where he curated video art programs.
Sam's video artwork has been shown at Centre Pompidou, Paris and Kunstlerhaus Bethanien, Berlin, and has screened in festivals in New York, San Francisco, Chicago, Berlin and Amsterdam. Sam and partner Jeanne Angel currently design video for Genesis Breyer P-Orridge, Psychic TV and Thee Majesty.
This system was designed to solve two challenges: to feature a range of market-supplied footage of unreliable quality, and to embrace the Plum logo, an awkward football-shaped creature inclined to push things away.

A selection of brand packages for program series, some shot and aired in one market, some shown across the network. The Juice, Fresh Tracks and Savor are examples of programs developed by the network to be executed by each station with local hosts and content.
I produced music videos for the Rolling Stones and Pink and Brown. I also helped create an interactive outdoor sculpture mixing telephone messages left by visitors into a real-time audio collage, and an Android app to support free speech.
