Meet BrentAs a child, I watched a PBS home video called "The Creation of the Universe". I learned about the Big Bang and the four fundamental forces. I was enraptured by the idea that I could learn about what "is really going on", deep down. I carry this focus through to today, to keep looking for what is really important, and what are the root causes and mechanisms. I went on to teach introductory physics and found that I loved helping people struggle through difficulties and grow as a result, being able to do something they previously thought impossible, and to become aware of a bigger reality, better finding their place in the universe.
