Sam has been writing professionally since 2014, when a client hired him to write a series of blurbs describing assorted pieces of furniture. Since this inauspicious start, he’s reached the point where he can do what many writers only aspire to; live a life of semi-luxury without having to answer to anyone but his clients.
Before moving to Asia, Sam traveled the world. He completed a motorcycle trip in India, worked on a commune in rural Ukraine, learned to surf in Peru, saw the undistorted night sky from a beach in end-of-the-world Nicaragua, survived a motorcycle accident in Bali, and took in the view from the top of the Burj Khalifa.
Although Sam has written about many things, ranging from solar power to social work, his specialization is new. Technology in general, but blockchain technology in particular.
Even if we ignore Bitcoin and the controversy surrounding this usurper’s name, distributed ledger technology is a game-changer. Our lives will be dramatically different in ten years, hopefully for the better, as much of our day-to-day transactions take place on the blockchain—digital deeds, instant payments worldwide, security tokens, and so much more.
Sam feels like blockchain today is akin to the internet in the late 90s. We’re about to witness a revolution, and few people understand the magnitude of the change that’s about to occur.
Sam enjoys reading, studying macroeconomics, and surfing large waves when not writing. He already owns fourteen surfboards and aspires to own more.
