Logan P. Smith
I read with some amusement my reputation as a ladies' man. My friends are amused by that, too, because they know my life.

That's a hobby of mine - to do whatever I can for unusual for-hire creative projects. I am waiting for someone to really challenge me - obviously I'm often approached to do film related work, but I would be very happy to design a bar or an amusement park ride. I would love to be an imagineer!
