My name is Sam, yes Sam I Am, and I do, for the record, love green eggs and ham, not to mention exotic food, fast cars, sandy beaches, and a host of other things, some sane, some not so sane (for example, I once watched a movie with a pet scorpion sitting on my shoulder the whole time).
I am the brain (or lack thereof, depending on your point of view) behind the SamAntics blog. I had the idea for this about 15 years ago when I was looking for a good name for a company. Unfortunately, someone beat me to the punch on the company (but not the blog!). While I can’t always be first, I can still do it best.
I grew up in Texas (much too hot), moved first to Utah (much too cold), then to Seattle (way too rainy), and am now traveling around the world as a digital nomad. I hope someday to find my happy place!
I am married to my wonderful wife Ashley, who is an avid blogger, aspiring author, and an amazing artist. She is the most amazing woman in the world, and I count myself lucky every single day.
I’m a member of MENSA, and have something known as low latent inhibition. The rare combination of a high IQ and low latent inhibition means that I process and retain information in larger quantities much faster than average, making it easy for me to quickly learn and master new concepts and skills…
…Unfortunately, it also tends to make me extremely bored. 🙁 To combat that boredom, I blog, travel, learn new things and start companies.
My current venture is an Internet Marketing company called VUDU Marketing that specializes in SEO audits and strategies. I’ve done work for a number of major corporations, including Fortune 500 companies. While far from the least expensive option out there, the work is first class and worth every penny.
I’m working on a handful of other ventures, am an advisor to a number of startups, and I’m always happy to lend my experience and expertise to other entrepreneurs looking for advice or help. I’m also happy to donate my time if you are looking for a guest lecturer at a local college, high school, or non-profit organization. Please, feel free to contact me via LinkedIn or Twitter if you need help or advice with a project, a speaker, or anything else. (Please don’t spam me). You can learn more about my business and technical expertise here: SamMcRoberts.com
I’ve always had a lot of opinions, something of a twisted sense of humor, and an unusually adventurous life. If you took Samuel Clemens, Leonardo DaVinci, and Calvin (of Calvin and Hobbes), and mixed them all together, you’d have me.
Thus was born SamAntics.
Enjoy the ride.
