Sebastian Smith was born in the back seat of a Cadillac in Biloxi, Mississippi. Devoting his adolescence to drag racing, dare devil stunts and petty theft, he left home at sixteen and took a job as an elephant trainer in Delhi. After achieving the distinct honor of blessing the sacred royal herd in the Ganges River, he roamed the world taking a variety of jobs: he was a bull fighter in Spain, a cigar tester in Cuba, and a fortune cookie writer in Beijing. He is anywhere and everywhere. This international man of travel and imagery is perhaps even in your backyard, at this very moment, drinking your whiskey, grilling up T-Bone steaks and lobster tails, in anticipation of your return home. In a non-creepy kind of way, of course.
