Biography:

Prof. Smith has ten years of professional experience as a graphic designer, photographer and printmaker in Los Angeles, Chicago, Minneapolis and Boulder, with clients such as Target, American Apparel, Orange County Museum of Art, and Urban Outfitters. 

In a recent art exhibition, HELLo tHERE, he presented binary (code) as a metaphor for a dualistic life: mind/body, zero/one, open/closed. Through the use of handwritten code and encrypted messages, the work points to a third element: a unifying and mystical space in between, where true communication is possible.

He lives in Lexington with his wife and two girls.
