A graduate of the University of Florida, Fred Smith is an author, filmmaker and product of the Florida Public Education System. His first
book Invisible Innocence: my story as a homeless youth is a nonfictional
account of Maria Fabian, a former homeless youth who spent two months
of her senior year living alone in an abandoned apartment with no
electricity or running water. His films The Kids in the Shadows and The
Invisible Youth of America have been instrumental in combatting the
issue of homeless youth in his hometown of Tampa, Florida and beyond.
