Hi, I’m Cooper Koch. I live in Dallas with my husband Todd and our two children, Claire & Mason. Aren’t we just the cutest? Seriously, I love us so much.

For as long as I can remember, I’ve been a storyteller. Usually making people laugh, typically as the butt of most of my own jokes. The older I get, the more I appreciate a really bad dad joke.

Professionally, I’m also a storyteller. As the founder of Cooper Smith Agency, I’m trusted with developing and telling the stories of my clients — mostly in the building materials and commercial real estate and construction industries.

I’m also the founder and publisher of He Said Magazine, an online source of things to do, see, buy, enjoy, etc…all from a witty gay perspective. Again, storytelling. Literally, in this case.

Way back in 2012, my family was featured in a national ad campaign for JCPenney that knocked a Million Moms on their ears. It’s hard to believe that something so loving created so much controversy.
