Bryan Smith is a Navy and Army National Guard veteran who can talk to anybody. He spent his time in the Navy living months under water as a submariner along the Mediterranean. Born in California, but raised in Conroe, Texas, Bryan now calls Austin home. When he’s not working at his state job, you can find him at record stores and coffee shops around town with his fiancée and their beagle Banjo.
Bryan will tell his story of finding a tribe abroad in his piece, A Home Under the Waves.
