Kent is originally from Fort Worth, Texas, but moved around a bit as a child having lived in Hawaii for seven years, then moving to Park City Utah with my family. He’s always had a strong penchant for writing since he was in high school; he enjoys the creativity of it. This was a major reason he got his Bachelor’s degree in Creative Writing from Linfield College and a Master’s degree in Technical Communication from San Diego State University. Kent’s education played a major role in propelling his career in technical writing and project management not only by the fundamental writing skills he learned, but also with the critical thinking that was necessary to use in pursuit of his degrees.
Kent currently lives in Salt Lake City near downtown as a grant writer for the Park City School District primarily aiding the Director of Community Education in writing and securing grant moneys for all necessary programs. Although he consider this a short-term opportunity, it has opened his eyes on the truly business-like nature that our education system is built upon and how important it is to navigate that to ensure there are funds available for these programs to be offered to the public. He doesn’t know how much longer he’ll remain in the education industry, but he has gained an appreciation for the balance of a public service and politics that is necessary for a properly-managed school district.
