Trent’s journey began at Georgetown University, where he enrolled in 2011 to pursue a degree in Sports Tourism. Eager to combine his love for sports with his interest in event planning and management, he found the program to be the perfect fit for his ambitions, and graduated from Georgetown in 2015 with a degree in Sports Tourism. The knowledge and skills he acquired during his time at Georgetown set a strong foundation for his future endeavors. However, Trent’s insatiable appetite for knowledge pushed him to seek further education and specialization in his field.

Eager to expand his horizons, Trent enrolled at Coastal Carolina University in 2016 to pursue a Master’s in Sports Management. Recognizing the potential of this rapidly growing field, he dove into his studies with a passion and commitment that was characteristic of his approach to life. Throughout his time at Coastal Carolina, Trent made valuable connections within the industry and gained practical experience through internships and collaborative projects. Two years later, in 2018, Trent emerged from Coastal Carolina with a Master’s degree in Sports Management, armed with a deeper understanding of sports administration, marketing, and event management. With his academic background and a solid skill set, Trent ventured into the professional realm to make his mark in the sports and fitness industry.

A highly skilled athlete in the art of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Trent has honed his techniques and participated in numerous renowned grappling tournaments. His talent, discipline, and mental fortitude have earned him recognition in the grappling community, with notable achievements and victories to his name. Parallel to his grappling career, Trent has also embarked on a journey as a personal trainer.
