An alumni of The Ohio State University, he has a strong passion for mentoring. Smith lives with his wife, Tasha, in Laurel, MD.

His podcast, The Process, depicts life's challenges we all must endure. They also present the insight we all have within to face those "storms" as they arise. By using the clever use of acronyms within his messages, he offers a way for us to remember key points as we grow forward. One of the methodologies Smith often speaks of is believing “Your Why is Greater Than Your Situation Which is Part of Your PROCESS". This gives us the perspective that we are always GROWING FORWARD.
