Kent Brockman is what you get when you mix together a problem solver, a tinkerer, a science enthusiast and an insatiable appetite for learning new things. A graduate from the University of Waterloo’s Nanotechnology Engineering program, Kent has lived in more domains than you can shake a stick at; graphics card development, medical device manufacturing, on-silicon device processing, homebrew electronics, robotics and software development – just to name a handful.
