Brent is a Project Designer at Maclay Architects. After graduating from Philadelphia University in 2015, Brent worked for a series of Vermont firms before working abroad in 2019. After returning, Brent began working with Maclay Architects in February 2023, in pursuit of participating in creating buildings that best benefit both humans and their surrounding environment.

Brent has recently started helping with modeling and design of projects at Maclay Architects, striving to learn and implement efficiencies in energy usage of each building, as well as in the workflow that goes into the creation of each project itself.

Brent lives in an energy efficient tiny home he and his wife built in 2022. He enjoys working on projects around the house, prototyping through 3D printing, and spending time outdoors with his dog and wife.
