Stephen V. Smith

President & CEO

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 more than 25 years. He works harder than any client could ever possibly expect, envisions more projects than the company could ever possibly pursue, and buys more books than he could ever possibly read. If you want to talk about big dreams, Stephen’s your man.

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.
