When Not in the Office…

Although Dr. Smith is passionate about helping others achieve better sleep, he is also passionate about his family, which includes his wife, four daughters, and five grandchildren. Not only do they love to travel, but they regularly participate in scuba diving adventures through various ecosystems around the world. Dr. Smith is also a diehard fan of Dallas sports, specifically the Mavericks, Cowboys, and Rangers. In the midst of all this, he has also found time to write two fiction mysteries that revolve around his interests in scuba diving and sleep and even learn how to play the hammered dulcimer.
