About Randy Smith
The real person behind Randy Smith (a pen name) was born in Downtown L.A. in 1977. An avid punk rock fan, Randy played in several punk bands in the early to mid 90s. In college, Randy specialized in international relations and history. After teaching for a year, Randy moved to Washington, D.C. for law school. Randy has been a practicing attorney for the past sixteen years.
“Randy Smith” was conceived four years ago when his creator quit driving to work and opted for public transportation instead. Ditching his car was a life-changing decision. The long cross-town commutes on L.A. Metro trains and buses allowed Randy the creative space he needed to write “The Raffle” series and several screenplays, including one film now in development. Randy is currently working on writing/screenwriting projects while still working as a full-time attorney and on his other passions: husband, standup comic/actor, law professor, public transportation activist, and podcaster.
