Early life

Smith attended Chapman University where he briefly performed stand-up comedy for five years. He graduated from the Chapman University's Dodge College of Film and Media Arts in 2003 with a degree in screenwriting. Upon graduating from college, he left stand-up comedy and begin pursuing voice acting full time in 2004; his stand-up routines also helped him in his approach to his voice acting career.

In January 2021, he revealed on his Twitter account that he would no longer be voicing the character, which was later retracted in May 2021, when he announced his return to the franchise.

Smith also voices Ezio Auditore da Firenze from the Assassin's Creed series, Chris Redfield in the Resident Evil series, Hawkodile and Richard from Unikitty!, Baron Draxum in Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Season 2, Captain America / Steve Rogers in several Marvel projects, Deidara in Naruto: Shippuden, Thomas and various other characters in Regular Show, Shinji Hirako in Bleach, Martin Reest in Monster, and Batman / Bruce Wayne in Batman: Arkham Origins, Batman Ninja, and Superman: Red Son.
