Samuel is an award winning poet published by University of Queensland Press.. “I take all of my writing influences from pop culture".

Never was classic literature responsible in handing me great epiphanies of alchemy like David Bowie’s musings of ashes, Cheech and Chong taught me comical timing and Sting’s Police hinted that science would propose to art in a beneficial communion for walking on the moon. 

I had my first kiss at the age of 5 to Debbie Harry’s heart of glass..”
