Originally from Greer, South Carolina, Brent brings to Keystone Science School a passion for the outdoors, environmental science, and working with youth. Prior to joining our team, Brent’s adventures led him to teach in China, guide backcountry trips in Alaska, hone his environmental education experience during an internship in Wyoming, and share his love for the mountains at a Colorado summer camp. These experiences have helped Brent to grow as an educator, and he now supports the KSS Education team with winter curriculum expertise and practical risk management experience. Brent chose to work for Keystone Science School because “we have such great accessibility to incredible locations that can be extremely impactful for students to experience”. When he’s not working, Brent’s outdoor enthusiasm takes him on many ambitious adventures.
What was your most memorable outdoor experience?
“My first year backcountry skiing, I was lucky enough to have two incredible ski partners that also worked at KSS. They taught me how to manage risk and make decisions in the backcountry and we had many amazing adventures together. One adventure that sticks out is skiing the Cross Couloir on Mt of the Holy Cross. It is an objective that requires careful planning, good communication with your partners, good technical skills, and the right conditions. Doing it with those two partners in my first year backcountry skiing was really special.”
