Brent grew up in the suburbs of Orlando, Florida. He received his first camera at the age of 15, and has been enthralled by photography ever since. He moved after high school to a small town in Colorado for three years, before heading to the beautiful scenery of the Northwest coast in 1999. After having lived in Seattle for a few years, he traveled to Europe for the first time in 2002, and has been traveling whenever he can ever since. After another 10 years in Seattle, he then moved to New York City from 2012 to 2015 with his girlfriend Arianna, and their cute rescued seal-point Siamese cat, Ayutthaya. They now currently reside in the beautiful Northwest.
