CEO | Co-FounderWith coffee running through his veins, Brent is founder and CEO, overseeing strategic direction and managing business development.

As a lifelong entrepreneur he became frustrated connecting with businesses and being put on hold. He envisioned a platform that connects customers with businesses through text messaging. With all this experience, it’s no wonder he’s also a master of his domain on the fairway.
