Dan Smith
Dan Smith

No, I am not the Dan Smith who’s the lead vocalist of the band Bastille. That’s this guy. Nor am I the Dan Smith who started the underground hip hop group Listener, nor the guitarist for the British rock band Noisettes. That’s this guy and this guy..

I’m also not the Dan Smiths playing on the Gateshead Soccer team or the Dan Smith on the Weymouth Soccer team. That’s this guy and this guy, respectively. I also never played in the NHL, pitched in the MLB for the Texas Rangers, nor the Montreal Expos. That was this guy, this guy, and this guy.

Now even though I am a designer, I am not the Dan Smith who illustrates for many fantasy games. That's this guy. I’m also not the famous tattoo artist from L.A. Ink. That's this guy. I also don’t play poker professionally. That's this guy.

I will also not teach you guitar. That's this guy.

I am, however, willing to accept all fan mail, gifts, presents, prizes, and money intended for these other Dan Smiths. I’m completely okay with that.
