Growing up in Minnesota’s north woods, Samir has a strong background in adventure journalism. Before coming to Siege, he curated and ran the outdoors section at a local Twin Cities news publication. With a passion for words that catalyze inspiration, he loves to dig deep with exhilarating stories and share them with the world.

When he’s not cooking up content, you’ll find Samir climbing on rocks, diving to the depths, shredding through local bike trails and working to protect all the places that make these activities possible … or watching Valley Uprising for the upteenth time.

And these are a few of his favorite things.
