Sheri Smith started her self-employment career at the tender age of nine, when she landed a starring role in a Broadway musical – with no previous singing, dancing or acting experience. “Here’s Love” was the adaptation of “Miracle on 34th Street” and Sheri (Sheri Bond at the time) won Natalie Wood’s part. Commercials, one of which was the longest running M&M commercial ever run (“melts in your mouth, not in your hand”), and soaps soon followed. The family decided it was better for her to pursue an education than an acting career. Smith worked (corporately) for Mark Canton at Warner Brothers as his administrative assistant and reader, Arthur Axelman, a packaging agent at William Morris as assistant and read scripts for TV movies, and as a production assistant or assistant to the producer for many indie producers – one (for Tom Cole) led to a part in a pilot for one of the first reality shows ever - The Dream Thing.
In the mid ‘80’s and at twenty-something, Smith left the entertainment industry to start a company called Executive Express, Your Personal Runaround. Executive Express was featured on the front page of the LA TIMES business section. Pam Dawber saw the article and liked the idea so much she developed and starred in a television “movie of the week” around Smith’s idea (This Wife for Hire).
Although this particular venture was not meant to be, Smith turned her entrepreneurial talents to marketing a catering and event production company. She grew the company to a three and a half million dollar enterprise and catered to some of Hollywood’s elite (Mayor Riordan, Rock Hudson, Stefanie Powers and more). They catered to bands and shows for ten years as the exclusive backstage caterers for Irvine Meadows Amphitheatre in SoCal, feeding Michael Jackson, The Moody Blues and The Smiths among many more; the venue also hosted the Pacific Symphony and their discriminating clientele. After ten years of that grueling 24/7 commitment, Smith decided to move to Hawaii - before total burnout - and build something for retirement (and fun!) – a unique, oceanfront vacation rental, a castle in Hawaii. It was here as she was immersed in Hawaiian culture, she was able to spend time pursuing her passion as an artist, writing screenplays.
Her other passions are cooking, teaching people to cook, dog training and observing canine behavior. She has trained her German Shepherd Dog in Schutzhund (protection, ob, tracking), Agility and qualified him as Service Animal.
