Samuel Colunga was raised in Fort Worth, Texas. Shortly after graduating from North Side High School of Science & Mathematics in 1999, Samuel took his love of tinkering with electronics and gadgets and applied it to several jobs in the field of technology. However, his lifelong passion for writing and using his voice lead Samuel into the world of video game journalism, writing for TalkingAboutGames, TheMarriedGamers, PixelRelated, and Geeks FTW. Samuel later attended Tarrant County College’s famous Trinity River Campus where he was instrumental in the founding of two clubs, the Natural Sciences Club, and the Trinity River Film Club. Samuel was an officer in student government two years in a row, and was inducted into the honorary and prestigious Phi Theta Kappa. It was there that Samuel became a vice president, and the following year was voted in as chapter president.
Upon exiting college, Samuel continued his work in games journalism and podcasting. He co-hosted and edited every episode of the show Geeks With Color from 2009 to 2016. Samuel was also the Monday Night Raw correspondent for the ever popular wrestling podcast from CSPN, The WrassleCast. Currently, Samuel co-hosts the show Scarcasm Live. In the very near future, Samuel will be launching his own TV, movie, and geek culture media brand with both written and spoken content.
In his free time, Samuel likes to eat foods that are new to him, read books, play retro video games, and rewatching his two favorite shows, The West Wing and Frasier.
