Biography

Brent was born and raised in Minnesota but moved to Alaska over 20 years ago. After falling in love with the trails of Eureka, AK, Brent took over a homestead established in the 70s and this is where he now lives with his dogs since 2012. Brent is a two time Yukon Quest 1000mi Champion (2015 and 2019, both times also rewarded with the Vet’s Choice award for his dog care). He’s excited to be back on the Iditarod trail in 2020. Mushing is a way of life for Brent – it gives him a chance to get out and explore Alaska, but most importantly it is all about the dogs and the relationship he has with each and every one of them. Getting to know each dog’s behavior and personality is what makes dog mushing such an adventure. Every day is exciting, whether it is traveling on a new trail or learning something new about the dogs. Living his dream and setting and accomplishing goals is what drives Brent every day, along with all of his incredible fan support.
