My Philosophy

In his famous tragedy Antony and Cleopatra, renowned poet and playwright William Shakespeare penned these words: “Though it be honest, it is never good to bring bad news; give to a gracious message an host of tongues, but let ill tidings tell themselves when they be felt.”

I would dare to offer a contrasting viewpoint to Shakespeare’s seemingly wise anecdote. In today’s age of international violence, governmental corruption, and economic woes being felt more than ever, not sharing “ill tidings” would be impractical for a society pleading for recovery.

Testimonials

“Brent tells a good story - something key for any journalist. And, he works well in difficult environments. I saw him oversee his own shooting and producing for a story based in Senegal. Good job.”
