Nathan Smith was born in 1975 and grew up in beautiful, beautiful Davis. After finishing high school, he attended UC Santa Cruz where he hoped to get a degree in engineering.

This did not work out so well.

After dropping out, Nate moved back to Davis where he lived and worked between 1994 and 1999. Jobs held by him during this time include the Blue Mango (dishwasher), the Crepe Bistro (prep cook, dishwasher, cook), Tower Records (retail zombie), FamiliesFirst (counselor and holder-downer of angry children), the John Natsoulas Gallery (gallery preparator), the Whole Earth Festival (logistics director 1996, food booth director 1997), and the Varsity Theatre and Veterans' Memorial Theater (theater technician). He lived on E. Eighth Street and later in the incomparable luxuriousness of Slatter's Court Residential Resort.

After a lot of screwing around, traveling, truck driving and community college, Nate finally settled back in Davis in 2004 to finish his engineering degree, which he did in June 2006. He currently lives in Oakland and works in San Francisco as a Java developer.

Back in Davis, you can still find his awesome and loving parents, Brenda and Nelson. In addition to the folks, Nate's family includes three sisters and one brother. Amy lives in Sydney, Australia with her boyfriend, Brett and works as a civil engineer. Jenny lives in Santa Barbara with her husband, Kyle, and is getting her PhD in biology. Betsy lives in Sacramento with her husband, Dana and her awesome dogs, Harvey and Jody. She works in a veterinary clinic. Kevin is a freshman at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo.
