Skip Sams is the Founder and Head Coach of The Creative Purpose Project. He is an award-winning composer and multimedia producer. Skip has over 16 years of recovery from crystal meth, alcoholism, and bipolar disorder. In 2004, he was diagnosed with HIV. For over a decade, Skip has been defying these diagnoses and helping musicians and performing artists who have lost their technical skills, disconnected from their inner music, and whose spark of creativity has gone dark. His mission is to help 10,000 musicians share their light and hope of recovery through 10,000 recordings and 10,000 performances by 2030. Skip last smoked a joint on April 19th, 2006, making his sobriety date 4/20.
