Born in Pasadena and raised in Santa Clarita, Smyth attended local public schools and earned his B.A. in Rhetoric and Communications from the University of California, Davis, where he was also a two-sport athlete.

Political background

Smyth began his career as a Field Representative for the California Republican Party. In 1994 he was hired by the late State Assemblyman William "Pete" Knight. In 1996, Smyth served as campaign manager for Knight's successful State Senate campaign. Other than Garrett Biggs, who served as on-site manager for the late Assemblyman Nao Takasugi's successful re-election campaign, Smyth was the youngest on-site manager for any state legislative race in California at that time.

Upon winning the election, Knight promoted Smyth to the position of Deputy Chief of Staff. In 2000, Smyth moved to the private sector to operate his own consulting business.


Smyth and his wife Lena are the parents of two sons.
