Brent started acting at University. This first introduction was in theatre. His first experience with acting on camera was commercial television. After half a dozen commercials, he spent the next years learning the craft of acting. Studies in voice, movement, sense and affective memory work, as well as the tequnical requiremants for on camera performences. He continued auditioning and working in film, while watching and learning on set from people like Lou Gosset Jr., Bob Hoskins, Catherine Mary Stewart, Rob Lowe, Michael Madison.
Around this time, Brent and his acting partner Gilles Plouffe created and co-founded, with the sponsorship of ACTRA the "Actors Workshop". He wanted a place where actors could go to practise their craft. The objective was to constantly work to improve their skills as actors through scene work, monologs, comedy acting, etc. as well as workshopping local material, and having special guest directors in. Four years later, the reins have been passed over to others, so that Brent could work and study with John Strasberg out of New York city, New York.
He is already seeing great dividends from working with such a giant like Strasberg, and is continuing to work with him presently. When he's not acting you can find him with his lovely wife Janet, and his two adorable kids, Kaitlyn and Connor. Brent likes cycling, staying fit, and spending time in the outdoors. He enjoys working with his hands, working with wood, and of course finding time to settle in and enjoy a great film.
