Sam Renkin's interests as a teen eventually led to a degree in Radio, TV and Film production from the Grady School of Journalism at the University of Georgia. Minor studies included Advertising and Theatrical Set Design & Lighting.
He spent the early 1990's working as a freelance videographer and editor before migrating "full time" into creative development and project oversight for meetings & events. Working with a variety of agencies and production companies, he gained valuable experience writing proposals, pitching creative, designing graphics and stage sets, building PowerPoint presentations, writing content for videos and executive speeches, and directing live event productions. His experience as a videographer, stage manager, producer and speech coach have helped to shape a unique creative process which lends a deep awareness of production realities to every Sonar design concept.
