Hollywood writer and producer, Brent Friedman, hadn't set out to become a big-time writer and producer. His dream was to be an actor until he stepped into acting class on his first day of college and was told to leave and NEVER come back! In that moment, he thought his life was over! He chose to quickly pull himself up and decided to use this experience as a soul-searching opportunity and realized his true passion was in writing. He has spent over 20 years working in Hollywood as a writer and producer and has been involved in many titles such as Afterworld, Woke Up Dead, Startrek: Enterprise, Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Star Wars: Rebel, Enterprise, Lost City Raiders, the NBC Series - Dark Skies, and many more to include several video game projects such as Command and Conquer 3, Tiberium Wars, Empires and Allies, Adventure World, Halo 4…just to name a few.

After several years of working in Hollywood, he decided it was time for a change and chose to move his family to a slower-paced lifestyle in the Pacific Northwest. Upon making this decision he was told if he moved his life would be "effectively over". Brent REFUSED to accept this as a possibility. Since his move, he has worked more and turned down more offers. Brent says, "Do not accept someone else's fears as your own." Because he refused to take on the fears of others and follow his own desires his career has flourished as a writer and he has also taken on an entreprenuership role as the founding partner in Electric Farm Entertainment, a leading transmedia company.
