Stephen Smith

VP, Special Projects

Stephen co-founded WordSouth 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, utilities, and other mysteries for 30 years. Stephen and Michele have 2 amazing kids, a loving daughter-in-law, and several epic dogs. Topping the list, though, is their adorable and perfect grandson who arrived in the fall.

When Stephen was a young boy, he thought ad man Darrin Stephens on Bewitched had the coolest job in the world. Then one day he realized that agency owner Larry Tate actually had the better role. Before these career aspirations, 5-year-old Stephen wanted to be a pterodactyl.
