He started playing guitar and was one of the principal songwriters in the band Sandbox. the group quickly signed a record deal with EMI in Canada and Nettwerk in the U.S. Nominated for a Juno Award, East Coast Music Awards and a Casby Award, Sandbox released two albums with EMI and Nettwerk - Bionic and A Murder In The Glee Club.

When Sandbox broke up in 1998 Mike began working as a location sound mixer on film and TV. He was hired to mix the original Trailer Park Boys black and white movie in 1999 where director Mike Clattenburg discovered him doing the 'Bubbles' character on set for the crew. Clattenburg saw that the character had some very lovable qualities and decided to write him into the upcoming Trailer Park Boys TV series. Never having acted before Smith decided to accept the offer but also remained on as the series sound mixer until Season 3.
