In 2015 Sam established his own company 'Dim Timbre' (Dark/Stupid voice) to explore the creation of open theatre, work that is indefinable by genre, collaborative by effort, challenging and entertaining in performance. The core belief is that creators and performers should not limit themselves by genre;  This is not only cross-art approach to creation and performance but also as an approach to pedagogy.

As a teacher Sam teaches classes and workshops that aim to train dancers in interdisciplinary practises, primarily bridging the gap between dance and theatre with an emphasis on characterisation through movement, presence and performance. The workshops are largely movement based but take influence from techniques such as Stanislavsky, Meisner, clowning, mime and mask.
