Brent's presentation experience was started in his early stages of high school within the English department of his class. Here he would delve into the basics of what presentations needed to have in order to be effective in being received by any audience. Though there weren't too many projects at this time in his educational career, it would help propel him forward for what was to come in future presentations when he would attend the University of North Dakota. Once Brent graduated high school, he started his college career at UND and also took classes that encapsulated what he had previously learned in high school and took those fundamentals and greatly improved upon his knowledge of what and how a professional presentation should essentially be presented. While attending UND, Brent also enrolled in Air Force ROTC to test the waters of what a military life would be like. Here is where he gained the most confidence and professionalism in terms of projecting himself through his words, but more so in his presentations he prepared for the in-class sessions pertaining to particular aircraft the Air Force was operating or planning to operate in the future. Along with ROTC, Brent also engaged largely in his English, German, and Russian classes and was presented with many opportunities to offer presentations to his class. This tested Brent on a daily basis, as he was not only dealing with his native syntax of English, but also of two foreign languages as well. Brent saw this as a great opportunity to advance not only his understanding of how to effectively reach an audience with a presentation, but to also gain an expert understanding of how to use languages in general to provide the best presentation possible.
