Cooper Smith

Cooper Smith is a Digital Content Writer for Addiction Center. Cooper earned his Bachelor’s in Writing for Entertainment from Full Sail University, with the dream of writing for television. After graduation, he immediately began work with startups. Helping each one grow and filling all copy-based needs. It was this time, working on a range of different projects – from documentaries to promotions – that opened him up to a sense of community. He went from team to team, building up his network, reach, and reputation.

While initially interested in a career in television, because of the community Cooper grew into, he took a look at the world and those around him. This gave him the push he needed to realize that he needed to make a change. Now, he wants to use his knowledge to reach out to people who may need help and engage the public with issues we are facing as a society. When he isn’t behind a computer, Cooper travels somewhere new.
