Behind the Screen

good to meetcha!

Hi, I’m Sam! I was born and raised in Akron, Ohio, where I earned my B.A. in Studio Arts.🎨 Now, I’m based in St. Louis and run Freshly Stale to keep busy (and sane!).👀

But what is Freshly Stale? It’s just a silly little blog, where I like to keep my silly little thoughts.💻


I’m just trying to live my best life, and hope to inspire you to do the same. At any rate, I like reading, cooking, and learning to code! ☕💕 My goal is to eventually have a house and a dog.🐶

What Do I Do?

Writing Whether it’s poems, essays, blog posts, or reviews, I simply never shut up! Read some of my works here.

Photography Nature is so inspiring, and I try to appreciate her as much as I can by means of photography! Check out my Instagram here, or just scroll to the bottom of this page to see some photos.
