His resume is long with top blockbuster movies, television, commercials, and music videos; such as Fast and Furious, Mission Impossible, Step Up, Transporter 2, Spider-man 2, Gone in 60 Seconds, Rush Hour, Burn Notice, Street Outlaws, The Last Ship, Ride Out-Furious 7, Metallica:Fuel, etc. You can see him doing fire stunts, fight scenes, and doubling actors; but his specialty is in vehicular stunts.
Sammy always had a desire for hot rods, speed, and testing his abilities. at the age of nine, Sammy was clocked by lieutenant larry johnson, doing 75 mph down San Gabriel blvd, in a gasoline powered go-cart that he had built out of scrap materials. lieutenant johnson said, "it wasn't always easy to catch up with sammy; his go-cart could fit through spaces i couldn't get my cruiser through." at age 14, sammy began building small block engines. He then went on to open his own race car shop in which, of course, he specializes in building high horse power racing engines and muscle cars.
