Jeffrey Smith’s background ranges from Hollywood to high tech. He began his career in advertising, writing, producing, and directing commercials for clients including McDonald’s, Panasonic, and Sony. He moved his family to Los Angeles after being offered a producer role at Disney’s promo department, where he created hundreds of trailers and TV spots.
He also co-created and produced the internationally-syndicated children’s television show Reel Planet.
In 2007, Jeff decided to fulfill a lifelong dream and create a comic strip. It was at that time that he felt God pressing upon him to use the comic strip format to spread His Word. A few months later, Prayer Pups was born, and the comics are now read across America and in over 175 countries around the world.
