Samuel Zamora grew up in Boise Idaho. Upon entering high school, he became fascinated with music and joined choir which he pursued until the end of his high school career at Capital High School. A solid baritone singer, he decided to branch out onto the internet under the persona, "Saminat", and began to voice act and dabble in artwork and black magic on websites such as Newgrounds in 2011. Since then, he has acted in many animated projects, audio stories, and games. He enjoys long walks on the beach.
