Highschool Graduation_Cydnie

I am a father of two amazing daughters and a lover of life, nature and community. It was in my mid 30’s that I began a journey to unravel the pain and trauma surrounding the lack of love and trust I never had for myself - and my ego was not going to easily let go of the stories I had come to believe defined my life.

Learning how to let go and fully embrace choice (personal agency) is my life's journey and work.

I spent the first half of my life building a career around achievement, reaching C-Suite status, traveling the world, speaking, launching innovative technologies and building businesses. After an almost 10 year journey that led through some dark places, plant medicine journeys and eye-opening realizations, it became evident that nothing external was ever going to fill the void. As the reality of divorce after 18 years of marriage sunk in, I began to see the grind for what it truly was, bringing clarity to what really matters in life.

Beginning with a divine 'tap on the shoulder', I stepped out of corporate America, put everything else on hold and wrote my first book, Papercuts: The Art of Self-Delusion. Through this journey I found a novel way to relate to the ego (the small “self” in each of us), and shine a spotlight on where it prevents us from stepping into our agency and owning the true depth of our choice. 

I am on a mission to empower others to live a life by choice, not by chance. Drawing from my experiences, I resonate with and play the role of adventure guide for those eager to break free from their own limitations and societal expectations.

I thrive on being a catalyst for self-awareness and love, focusing on self-prioritization, vulnerability, and practices like breathwork for better mental and emotional health. My passion lies in helping others rewrite their stories, realize their worth, and embrace life's adventures, inspiring them to live a BOLD life - one that is as courageous, authentic and wild as they are at heart. 



Brent's casual yet intimate style, woven together with storytelling and poetry, challenges us to wake the 'F' up and step into our agency, owning the power of choice we have each been gifted and to start showing up to life with a deep sense of presence.

Papercuts: The Art of Self-Delusion

This is a love story.

Or really, it’s a story about who we don’t love, why we don’t love them, and the damage it has caused in our lives. It unravels the seems and exposes the innards of what we are too afraid to look at: Ourselves.
