Welcome to Redbud Patriot! My name is Sam. This site was established as a hub for me to express my creativity, explore my thoughts, and connect with the world.

There are two things I believe people must have in life to be truly happy: passion and purpose. I believe we all have a purpose, and when we find it, we should pursue it with passion.

I have always loved photography. Our vision is one of our most precious gifts, allowing us to explore our iridescent world to create colorful memories we come to cherish. Photography is a diverse profession and each photograph is a reflection of a photographer’s perspective. It is a compelling form of nonverbal communication. Due to time constraint, I now only post my photos on my Instagram account, Redbud Patriot.

I also enjoy writing poetry on occasion, which can be found here on my blog page. 

I’ve recently begun training as a raw food chef. I plan to incorporate my love for fine foods with my passion for photography, in hopes of inspiring others to live their healthiest lifestyle. Raw food photos will be posted on my other Instagram account, Raw Chef Sam.

Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you’re having an awesome day wherever you are!
