About Sam

Bio

Grateful for everything that's happening. I am growing my business here in New Zealand and through my art, I will spread appreciation and respect by helping kids from broken homes and families with financial hardships. If we can cover the necessities to keep children at school, they can focus more on learning and building the "know how" to have a prosperous future.

Areas of Expertise

Painter and Graphic Designer, Film - Directing, Producing, Writing, Editing, Cinematography, Music producer, writing - "how to", technical, and creative

An idea worth spreading

Don't talk to me about the bible or God. I've heard it all before. We've heard it all before. I am thanking God by making use of the chance, choice, opportunity and time he blessed us with. Gods power shows through the rewards of hard work.

I'm passionate about

Bringing ideas and projects to life.

Should Cannabis be legalized as a medicine?
Conversation Recycled. Whatever happened to freedom of choice? Or free trade? Whether for recreational or medicinal use, maybe people should have the option of using it or not. If your old enough to choose and make mistakes, your old enough to face the consequences of your actions. Maybe legalizing it will teach us. If it does not work out, de-legalize it. Future generations can look back and learn about it, just like we are with the wars. At the moment, we conclude ourselves without no trial period. No real evidence. At the moment, this on-going conversation leads us, to ask the same question next year and the year after that.

The future of crime
Hi Vadim, I reckon this is a complex discussion, so much avenues to blame (The demand for who or what they are stealing for, lifestyle/low socio-economic areas) or it could purely be the adrenaline of getting away with something or the joy of gettting something for free. A serial killer grows an addiction so it highly likely for career criminals to do so too. The system may need speculation? Once you have an offense on your criminal record and you apply at the local McDonalds, your very unlikely to pass a criminal check to get a job that nobody really wants. Placing offenders with no other choice to exist in a further career of crime. There might be a need for change in the layout of the criminal record documents. Maybe next to the offences, you'd have a list of courses or payments the offender attended and paid to rehabilitate them from such offenses so employers can read that something was done about it. If their offense was to do with money, the employer can direct the applicant to a job title away from money. At the moment it points out all the negatives giving no chance for anyone to move forward from their history. Sorry if this is irrelevant.

Does formal education play a significant role in the success of entrepreneurs and the outcomes of their business activities?
I attended art school. I learnt how to view and present an art work. Writing was also important to present the ideas of an art work or exhibition (catalogues, artist statements, essays). When I left art school, I had these skills that lead me nowhere. I still painted and exhibited and my work is a growing sensation in the Pacific. I picked up on Sound, Film and Music Production through years of sitting at home, joining forums and watching You Tube and other internet tutorials. I'm also a male model at Vanity Walk and I got some extra work for some television programmes and adds. I gained first hand insight of how they filmed. With access to so much information, tutors and industrys here on the internet, I didn't need to waste more time and pay for further education. I just found what I wanted to do and studied it. Any equipment I needed, I built it or saved up and bought it. I began to realise the rewards of being at art school, art school examined the importance of presentation. I apply the art school mode to any product, whether its a book, music video clip or art piece. I create and build a presentation (who or how will it be viewed, how is the writing complimenting the product), link up with charitys and organisations and pitch on how it fits the demand. I hope this was relevant to the question. I am new to the site and this is my first post. Awesome to be on board.
