Brad Smith joined the staff of the Frostic School of Art in 2008 as Woodshop Supervisor and Building Coordinator for South Kohrman Hall.  He started his journey in woodworking “by accident” in 1989 and considers himself very fortunate to have landed at WMU.  “The best part of my job is helping students work through difficult problems and seeing the results of hard work and dedication to the craft”.

In addition to his position at WMU, Brad plays oboe in the Kalamazoo Symphony Orchestra and is married to music professor, Wendy Rose.
