A former New Yorker who packed up and left for Missoula. I’m a film nerd with a near-encyclopedic knowledge of Hollywood history, a passion for live music, and a desire to travel to as many cool places as I possibly can. Things I’m a fan of, in no particular order: Pizza. Nicolas Cage. Ska music. Exploring new cities. Supporting local businesses and artists. My family. And before you ask - yes, I’m aware that Mike Smith is a very common name. There are multiple people I know in my life that are also named Mike Smith. Together, we will one day form a Mike Smith Army and begin the uprising… but today is not that day. I also like pina coladas and getting caught in the rain.
