Welcome to Smith Central

Hello and welcome!

My name is Ethan Smith, and I’d like to formally welcome you to Smith Central, my latest and greatest web project. Over the years, I’ve had a website dedicated to the things I’m interested in, and this site will be no different. I plan on posting interesting things as they arise, but for now, enjoy my video projects and some older articles that may be of interest.

If you’d like to know a bit more about me, check out this page, which I have dedicated to the subject. If you have any questions, concerns, or suggestions for my website, feel free to drop me a line using the Contact page.
