Brannon Smith from "Ghost Asylum" stars in the Destination America reality series. He is the trap inventor and brains of the paranormal group Tennessee Wraith Chasers (TWC).

Brannon Smith is intelligent and analytically grounded with a background in theoretical physics and a great desire to help others.

Raised in Gallatin, Tennessee, Brannon is the younger brother of Chris Smith and an aspiring physicist. Like Chris, Brannon was raised in a strict missionary Baptist home and is a skeptic of the paranormal.

Brannon is a physics and engineering major who is currently attending college. He plans to eventually earn a master's degree in electrical engineering and a Ph.D. in Theoretical Physics. He wishes to apply what he learns in physics and engineering to the paranormal investigations of TWC. He has a desire to explain hauntings as scientific phenomena that can be explained by theoretical physics, and he is intrigued by the Stone Tape Theory.

Being an extremely analytical thinker, he tries to explore every explanation possible before he will label a location paranormal. He doesn't believe that a person's soul will stay behind on earth after death, but that angels and demons roam the earth unseen. Brannon likes facing possible entities head-on to provoke a response. His true desire in paranormal investigation is to find logical explanations for paranormal activity. Having a natural human fear of sudden surprises like most investigators, Brannon's greatest fear is being afraid, or fear itself.
