Howdy!  
I'm Sam Dillard, a geeky Texan whose existence is preoccupied with composing cinematic music, 3D animation, video production, game development, writing stories, and martial arts.

Samo Studios is my online moniker, though despite the name, my "studio" actually consists of the corner of my garage-apartment out in the suburbs of Texas.  I am entirely self-taught in my creative endeavors, from drawing and playing on keyboards as a child, to tinkering with game making and figuring out 3D modeling software since high school. Thanks to the internet, I've managed to overcome the lack of opportunities from having no fancy college degrees and have made a name for myself due to the quality of my work, while gaining a modest but passionate fan base which I am very proud of, and who have continued to encourage my journey.

My goal is to be able to produce bigger, better, and more frequent multimedia content as a full-time job! Small steps for now!
