• THE STORY

    ABOUT SAMI SATTVA

    Just for a moment, I’ll tell you all the things you need to know about me. I am the managing director, creative director, and media producer at Lambda Lion. I also own a wellness blog by the name of Mindful Hellos. I like to consider myself somewhat a chameleon (without the personality disorder lol). I have this complex, but really unique, hybrid DNA of an artist / athlete.

    From a young age until mid-teens I was a serious competitive athlete who traveled all over the southwest for championships.
    I still to this day credit that as a crucial contribution to who I am today. It taught me how to be a leader, a team player, collaborative, and the need for team execution no matter how mad I may have been at a teammate or coach.

    Around 6th grade, I discovered dance and choreography. Who the heck seeks out choreography at 11 years old? Apparently, age was no factor for me. I carried that passion as I grew older but until I was finished with Sports, dance was a side-burner kind of hobby.

    My parents got a divorce at a time I was a teenager in need of desperate support, but looking back – it didn’t hold me back. It was a dark time in my life, I made irrational decisions and did some utterly regretful sh*t, but as they say … it allowed me to grow up a little bit quicker.

    For whatever reason, I was innately motivated to “work” at an early age, and by the time I was 18/19 I was already reeling in G’s in the music & entertainment world. I ended up moving to Las Vegas when I was 21 and as you would expect, it changed my life. I listened to my intuition and took a leap of faith by moving with a ridiculously small amount of resources.

    I ended up scoring some high profile connections + a well-connected native las vegas dancer who befriended me, took me into her beautiful 2 story home in Summerlin, and showed me the ropes of sin city. Still, to this day she is a friend! (Love you Heather!). Without really knowing how powerful thought was at that time, I manifested two jobs where people were on waiting lists to get into.
    This is where my love and passion for dance, music, entertainment, and production were expressed, utilized, radiated, and grew rapidly through experience. On the hush, I made about 10k a month living here.

    Fast forward

    I took my knowledge and business skills back to my home state where I built a multimedia talent agency, where our Performers were also Models. Inspired by the Golden Ages and classic art of burlesque, coupled with the energy of hip-hop dance, it truly bent the norm of our local dance scene and broke down barriers of what dancers have looked and acted like for decades. We combined fashion, dance, theatre, and class, we brought sophisticated chaos to the Music and Fashion scene. Man I miss that group! It was huge, that was my hometown – I had a lot of support. It evolved and gained traction in other cities, we’d often travel around to perform and promote other local music scenes, and that felt dam good.

    As the founder & creative director with a kick-ass supportive creative group, I was able to expand the groups’ toolbox by involving us in an array of music videos, photo shoots, small to large scale events & concerts, and as models for fashion shows and promotions.

    THIS is where 1/2 of my passion lies. The music, the entertainment, the visual storytelling and I could not be more thankful for all that I’ve been able to experience in my years of business.

    The Flipside

    The chameleon part of me is being able to flip the coin for a balanced, holistic lifestyle. Aside from my other education in the arts and marketing, I studied alternative medicine as a whole for 5 years. Holistic nutrition, mindfulness, yoga & Ayurveda, and for a hot minute I was striving to become a doctor. But entrepreneurship within creative business kept luring me back in, and I’ve accepted that my profound interest in achieving optimal health through natural medicine are what make up the inner layers of who I am.

    I am 32 and still rockin’, in a yet another new city! It has its challenges, I don’t have the support I’m accustomed to and I definitely don’t have the clientele I once did, but hey – it’s a journey worth walking and Lambda Lion is a blessing.
