Smith was given one of his first major career opportunities - an annual report for corporate giant Heinz - at a time when he was so naive that it wasn't until after he had finished the job that he realized what a rare gift it was.

"I knew nothing about pickles or ketchup," he recalls. "First I'm shooting bullets and rockets [for Northrop] and now I'm shooting food. It was one of the great gifts given to me. It's sort of fortuitous - the way life really is. Sometimes you really want something and you never get it, and other times you have no idea what something is, it's handed to you on a platter."
