Mr. Smith began his career in London working in the theater as an actor, writer and director. Following on from his theater work, Adrian developed projects for the BBC and became more involved with documentary filmmaking (including segments for the BBCs acclaimed Panorama series).

Mr. Smith moved to the USA in 1988 and formed Tricycle Productions, a team of like-minded writers, directors and production staff producing work on a variety of subjects including: environmental issues, indigenous rights, healthcare and the global impact of technology. Projects included work for the BBC, the Smithsonian, PBS, the United Nations and numerous non-profits and NGOs.

During this time Mr. Smith continued his love of dramatic projects and directed a series of short films that played on the international film festival circuit winning awards at the London, Chicago and Venice film festivals.

In 2000 Mr. Smith joined Yahoo! Inc. to champion the use of video in distance-learning modules and to create unique training and learning products. Mr. Smith continued his career at Yahoo! by becoming Senior Producer of Media Production for the Yahoo! marketing department where he produces work for Yahoo! advertising and marketing campaigns. Projects also include a series of Yahoo! funded documentaries on the consumer and social impact of the internet and related technologies.

In August of 2008 Mr. Smith created Slice of Life Media, a production company focused on producing short format documentary and consumer research projects for online distribution. Slice of Life Media is a sister company to IPTV Evangelist with whom technologies and resources are shared.
