Kent has been producing bold, breakthrough marketing content for more than two decades. He began his career at Ogilvy & Mather working in the fast-paced retail category, quickly learning how to navigate the intricate dynamics of stewarding sound creative concepts through the complicated production, post-production and review processes.
From there, he honed his production chops at numerous agencies including Young & Rubicam and DDB, where his experience spanned myriad brand categories from high-volume retail to high-concept automotive. Kent has produced on five of the seven continents and for every media channel including cinema, network, long form-branded television, documentary, and the ever-evolving digital space.
His work has won the acclaim of every major industry award organization including the Cannes Advertising Festival’s coveted Grand Prix, The Grand Clio, The Grand Addy, Best of Show in The London International Advertising Awards, as well as garnering two Emmy nominations. Additionally he has the distinction of having his work inducted into the permanent collection of the New York Museum of Modern Art.
Through 20+ years of technological development in the production industry, Kent believes the central responsibilities of an effective producer have never changed: to be well versed in the tools and language of the ever-developing communicative arts and to use those skills to protect and steward creative concepts from idea through execution into actualization.
An adventurer at heart, Kent is an accomplished solo sailor, has dove with great white sharks, meditated alone in the funerary chamber of Cheops, once poked a Komodo dragon with a stick, has been struck by lightning and won the only known footrace around the Homestead Florida NASCAR track.
