My name is Devon D. Smith, I was born and raised in the city of Milwaukee, WI. I have been actively making art since the age of five, as recalled by my mother “I never left home without a sketchbook and pencil.” I graduated from Milwaukee High School of the Arts in 2009 with a major in drawing and painting. I started writing poetry in middle school and by the time my junior year of high school rolled around my poetry had transformed into short stories and script. After high school I moved to Chicago, IL to attend Columbia College Chicago for a brief period. After about a year in Chicago I realized that film writing was my passion and decided to move back to Milwaukee and enrolled at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee for their renowned Film Production program. I have a year left in the program and after I complete my undergraduate degree the dream is to make films fulltime. I specialize in narrative, documentary, experimental, and music video. One day I hope to have my own film production company.
