Brent's films are known for their compelling, heartfelt and emotionally-visceral storytelling...including an award-winning project that caught the eye of Steven Spielberg, landing him a subsequent first-look deal with DreamWorks. Brent's recent narrative work has garnered honorable mentions in publications such as Variety and MovieMaker. Brent lives in Nashville, TN with his wife of seventeen years, and their five children.

Brent's feature directorial debut is Unconditional, starring Michael Ealy (Takers, Seven Pounds) and Lynn Collins (John Carter, Wolverine). Brent wrote, directed, and edited the film. He composed the majority of the music for the film as well.
'The Rift' won third place in The Doorpost Film Competition (2009).
