After graduating from NBSS, Brent moved to his home state of Texas and started a construction and millwork company.

Brent’s company is the exclusive millwork provider for the Winterthur museum, has restored historic courthouses in Texas and worked on many private residences including those of Barbara Streisand.
In addition to his success as a maker and businessman, Brent is a prolific writer in the field of traditional interior designs and moldings and has publishing several books.
