My name is Jeremy W. Smith and I am a graphic/web/sound/furniture/lighting designer and photographer.
I’m just a guy, just an artist, just a person, just a designer. I love music and great sound. I love art and great words. I’m a photographer with over 3000 fine art B/W prints. I make music. I play the guitar, piano and sometimes sing. I’m an animator; it’s hard work. I collect watches. I drink too much coffee, but I’ll switch to tea if it’s too late. I hate to do laundry and dishes. I like wine and fancy drinks. I love my wife. I dance, but only to Latin music. I like to sit listening to music with the lights down low. I like to see the stars at night. I like to read about new gadgets. I like to watch people. I’m just a guy.
To work where I am allowed to continue to push what I have done and what I can do. To work with a team that can take direction to push the envelope of what has already been done.
