Sam O’Daniel

The Writing Buddhist

Zenman hired Sam to be be their first Content Strategist, a job he feels is more “life calling” than “plain old 9-to-5.” A friend of his has often told him “words mean things,” and that’s how Sam feels about crafting content and copy. He trades in nuance, clarity, and economy.


Lets Chat!

Sam has visited 32 of these United States, but has only ever lived in California or Colorado. He prefers Colorado’s laid-back vibe, but honestly would rather be in Hawai’i. A bit of a traveler, he has also spent time in Japan, Mexico, Puerto Rico, and trekked Europe solo for a month while still in college. Sam recently spent a year volunteering for a hospice company, visiting patients and playing guitar for companionship.

Sam’s favorite writing implement is the .5mm Pentel Sharp™ Mechanical Drafting Pencil

Sam wrote a crayon-illustrated Hallowe’en story in 3rd grade called “Ghosts & Goblins Corner”

Sam has a delightful Netherlands Dwarf rabbit named Sir Oliver von Hopsalot – “Ollie” for short.
