Last year, the phone rang a lot.  If you called 732.599.2700, most of the time, the smiling voice on the other line belonged to Sam.  Sam’s easy-going personality shines through as she makes everyone around her happy to hear her voice.  Sam is also a talented artist, and along with her sister, Sydney, helped make the SUMMERTIME truck into a fabulous moving piece of art.  

 

Where did you go to high school? Freehold Township High School

 

Where do you go to college and what did you major in? Montclair State University. I’m majoring in Psychology with a minor in Art.

 

How long have you been involved with Summertime? I’m a newbie, so this is the first summer!

 

Why do you work here? I work at Summertime Surf because it is so different than any other job out there! This job is filled with amazingly talented people, who truly do what they love and it is such a wonderful thing to see and be a part of.

 

Besides working here, what else do you do to pay your bills? On a good day, I can make a few extra bucks selling paintings, or making art pieces for other people.

 

Do you have any talents? I love painting, drawing, and crafting. I also like to dance, can make a plate of food disappear in under 7 minutes, tell bad jokes, and can recite the entire script to Mean Girls and White Chicks.

 

Are you an Artist or Musician? Yes, I am an artist – my specialties include painting and crafting.

 

What kind of music or art inspires you? There is no particular art that inspires me – I enjoy all kinds of art, and if I do like something in particular about it, I take that idea and use it in my own way with my art pieces. So you can say that all art inspires me.
