You may see Multimedia reporter M. Smith taking a stroll around the community of Long Beach but what may look like a trip to the corner store or local barber, M never stops looking for a new compelling story. Smith mostly publishes as a video journalist, but also writes, photographs, as well. M strives to get the best camera shots and offer readers and viewers a full experience by submitting a package deal of photos, a story, and a video to complement each article. Smith wears many hats including producing the Wavegang podcast as a team manager.
