馃摉 About Jacks贸n

Jacks贸n Smith relishes good speculative, sci-fi, and romance stories. Washington, DC is his current home, but he can鈥檛 go two sentences without telling you he was born and raised in Missoula, MT. Influenced by Ursula Le Guin, George Saunders, and Franz Kafka, Jacks贸n鈥檚 stories teem with existential zest and no-nonsense adventure. By day, Jacks贸n strives to solve skills, equity, and mobility gaps in education around the world through his non-profit, Learning Economy Foundation. By moonlight, he crafts board games, spice quests, sings, west-coast swings, and performs improv comedy.
