My name is Samuel Kendrick and I am an independent, public folklorist. I grew up in rural Southwestern Missouri, and studied folklore in the masters program at Western Kentucky University in Bowling Green, Kentucky.

As I am a public folklorist, a lot of my work has been centered on bringing programming to the community surrounding Bowling Green. In my work, I endeavor to work closely with communities and individuals in order to create programming that is easily accessible to everyone involved.
