Director of Operations, Artisan Bullshitter
Born in Abilene, Texas, Brent was raised in a meat packing and ranching family. He graduated from Abilene HS, and followed up by graduating from Texas Tech University with a BA.
Brent enjoys watching the sunrise with a strong cup of joe and loves watching it set with a cold beer, or occasionally a smooth bourbon.
He’s got a quick and witty nature with an ironic sense of humor, that’s gotten him into trouble on more than a few occasions. He loves dad jokes and by photographic evidence, he hasn’t shaved his mustache since circa 1995. He loves himself a spunky Hawaiian shirt, and his favorite Christmas gift he’s received are tiny bottles of cologne that his grandkids got him.
He has traveled extensively through the US in pursuit of rainbow trout, brown trout, and mule deer. One of his greatest adventures to this day was dove hunting in Argentina. He smuggled in a Copenhagen can full of his best friend’s ashes to scatter at The Roost.
Other hobbies include camping and exotic vacations, where he went sky diving successfully and scuba diving semi-successfully (his mustache interfered with the scuba mask.) He also loves writing music and regularly attends live music festivals.
Some of Brent’s bucket list items include:
- Fly fishing in Argentina
- Hunting in South Africa
- Watching Great White Sharks jump out of the water while chasing seals
- Traveling above the Arctic Circle to see the Aurora Borialis
