Brent has created a diversified business portfolio in the endurance sport industry over the past 18 years. Like many business professionals Brent found the sport of triathlon while working in the corporate world back in 1994. Triathlon provided him with a healthy new set of goals that allowed him to create a more holistic balance in his life. In 1997 Brent walked away from the corporate scene to create a business that fit into his active life style of adventure travel and outdoor fitness. I couldn’t have dreamed what has played out since.
I became a regular on a nationally syndicated radio show in Charlotte, NC in 1998. The show basically had me talk about all the wild endurance sports I was competing in and organized interviews with top iconic athletes in our sport. This opened the door for me to create a niche in race announcing, TV, webcast, and PR.
Brent created Participate in Life multi-sport marketing and endurance sport coaching in 1999 based in Charlotte, NC. In 2002 he was brought out to California by a large triathlon event management company to develop and create several parts of their existing business as well as to create several new business models. Brent held a USA Triathlon expert level coaching certification from 2000-2010 (coaching since 1997) and has directed over 100+ USAT Sanctioned Triathlon and Open water swim camps/clinics. The primary area’s I do most of my Race announcing/Commentating and Consulting/promotional work are located in Central/Northern California and Hawaii. Brent has raced in all types of endurance sports over the years including Ironman triathlons, ultra-marathons, off-road triathlons, cycling, mountain biking, adventure racing, and ocean sports (Surf-Stand Up Paddle and Prone paddling).”Variety is the spice of life”.
Brent and his wife Kelley reside in Carmel-by-sea, California. You can usually find Brent in one of 3 places, either working at an event in endurance sports, traveling with Kelley or in the ocean surfing or paddling.
