Samantha Ryder

Samantha Ryder proudly spends her days greeting potential passengers as Submissions Manager. When planetside, you’ll mostly find her wrangling data. At other times, she’ll be adventuring at a tabletop, balancing precariously on the back of a motorbike, or turning rocks into shiny pretties.
