About BPM SmithBPM Smith

DJ: BPM Smith, known primarily as a Drum & Bass DJ, has performed at club and warehouse parties throughout the San Francisco Bay Area. He hosts the weekly WORD’N’BASS Show, broadcast Fridays on 104.1 FM from 10 pm to midnight in the Oakland/Berkeley/San Francisco area and streamed worldwide. He also mixes Downtempo Electronica and pioneered a new form of spoken word -- WORD’N’BASS -- that combines electronic music with prose.

Author: A former boxer who fought throughout the western United States, BPM Smith recently completed Bistro De Mars, an urban noir novel set in San Francisco's Lower Haight District amid the boxing scene, rave culture, and car thieves. He wrote a second novel, South of a Daydream Wish, about a pro boxer who kills a drug dealer and flees to Mexico with his girlfriend. His short stories have appeared in LitVision, Cups Magazine, and Sagebrush. Next on tap is Love.bomb, a humorous and biting tale about a twenty-something dot-commer whose relationships parallel the tech industry’s rise and fall.

Journalist: BPM Smith, who covers covers global commodities for a financial news company, was a contributing editor to seven business nonfiction books. In 2007 he was promoted to the position of senior news editor, making him the youngest staff member to hold that title at his 100-year-old firm. In late 2009, he was named deputy editor of its commodities division. Working in the media has brought him to major cities throughout North America and Europe, and granted an insight: business travel is horror without Vicodin and Prada sunglasses. He previously wrote for the Reno Gazette-Journal, PC World, and the Associated Press. BPM Smith has a bachelors of arts in English literature from the University of Nevada, Reno.
