Mr. Smith commenced a career in journalism at the government information bureau, the Agency for Public information (now the Jamaica information Service) in 1975. From the API, Mr. Smith moved to Jamaica's first community radio station, JBC Radio West, in 1979, where he worked as a freelance producer and programme producer. In 1980, Mr. Smith was the recipient of the Jack Anderson Memorial Scholarship for Journalism awarded by the Press Association of Jamaica, to study Mass Communication at the University of the West Indies. While in Canada, he continued his journalism duties, corresponding for JBC-TV and writing columns for the Jamaica Herald and Dawn newspapers in Canada. In 1995, he returned to Jamaica on a visit and went to the famous and legendary tourist attraction, Lover's Leap, where he used to play as a young boy. Three months later, his debut novel, Lover's Leap: Based on the Jamaican Legend was written. The novel was published in England, in 1999, to international acclaim.
