Sanctorum Staff Profiles:

Sam “Knash” Green – Writer, Spirits Seeker, Whiskey Geek

Sam is born and raised in Los Angeles who decided to abstain from drinking until he was 21 (the legal age in the United States of America) and didn’t start drinking and appreciating Whisk(e)y until he was almost 23. Now at the young age of 24, he has discovered the glory of the brown liquid known as Whisk(e)y, particularly Scotch.

Born and raised in Los Angeles with a passion for all things tech and “Geek”. Raised by a hippie actor Father and stay at home Mother, he attributes a fair part of his unique outlook on the world to his parents. With an ancestry hailing from Poland and England and family located worldwide he has a love of other cultures, especially those of Britain and Scotland.

A passion for Heraldry, as of November 2016, he has assumed the Coat of Arms that you frequently see on his lapel in his Pin of Arms™ in preparation for applying for an official Grant of Arms from a recognized Heraldic authority.

In addition to being a writer, and “industry adjacent” Sam is also a member of the prestigious Southern California Whiskey Club and has registered with the USBG in SoCal as an “Enthusiast member”, and as of March 2017, he has successfully completed the “Award T” Program’s Level 1 requirements, certified by the Mexican Government.
