Stephen V. Smith

Vice President

Stephen founded the company on New Year’s Day 1996 (alongside his wife, Michele) following an award-winning career as a journalist and photographer. He has been writing about people, business, politics, utilities and other mysteries for 30 years.

Stephen and Michele have two amazing kids and several epic dogs.

When Stephen was a young boy, he thought Darrin Stephens on Bewitched (York > Sargent) had the best job in the world (advertising executive). Then one day he realized that Larry Tate, Darrin’s boss, actually had the better job. Before these career aspirations, 5-year-old Stephen wanted to be a pterodactyl.
