David Smith

Personal Introduction:

I am a partner in a graphic design, artworking and web firm named 49th Floor. I like helping people. My favourite colour is blue and I sometimes cheat at Monopoly when I play with my wife's family. I find the best way to do this is to conceal at least 3 £500 notes under the table until just before the end. I have a conscience though and confessing in this manner means that I will now officially fast-track to Heaven.
