Brent began teaching acting in 2011 at one of the top rated acting studios in Los Angeles. During his time teaching he guided and mentored thousands of actors from all ages, backgrounds and at different levels in their careers, from beginners to established tv and film stars.
Brent’s success as a teacher is attributed to the fact that he teaches the way he wants to be taught, his continued education as an actor himself as well as his instinctual ability to quickly and specifically find the actors block, and help them to realize it and release it in a stern yet loving way. In the end he only wants to help actors succeed for the fact that he never had a mentor or someone encouraging him a the beginning of his journey into the entertainment business. He feels helping other succeed is success for us all.
Brent was born in Indianapolis, Indiana. After serving in Iraq as a Marine Corps Combat Photographer he moved to Los Angeles study acting and directing. Brent’s passion is acting, but occasionally he finds a project that takes him behind the camera. He also is an advocate for Human Rights and has created a company that promotes empowering women that donates to multiple non profit women’s causes around the world.
