Well hello there!
The name’s Sammie. In 2017 I decided to move my life half way across the world to have a shot as an acrobat in the World’s largest water show. It was a shot in the dark for a dream and it worked. I got to perform as a professional acrobat and transformed myself into a clown multiple days a week. It was the most extraordinary time of my life.
Life has been nuts since. I’m talkin’ 7 country changes in 2 years type of nuts. During Covid, I moved to Mexico with my boyfriend to escape being separated by travel advisories, then took a circus contract in Dubai in August 2021. And because (it’s becoming clear) I can’t sit still, I moved back to North America to be a circus nomad in 2022.

It might not be stable and it’s definitely a challenge some days! However, with the constant reminder that my choices are my own and no own else’s, I get through the hard days and remember all in all my glass is half full.

Travel is a beautiful thing. It’s education in its simplest form; a chance to build resilience while testing your limits. It just takes one encounter to change your perspective forever.
From monasteries in Tibet to dress rehearsals on stage, I’m trying to capture the moments I’ll hopefully never forget.
