About Brent

Going to both elementary and high school in the BrainPort region meant he came in contact with science and technology early on, which he enjoyed greatly. Because of this, he ended up pursuing an education and career in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. Looking for something that combines the academic environment and challenge with a broad and applied approach, he ended up choosing Industrial Design. It quickly became clear this was the right decision.

After completing several health-related projects and following another biomedical project within the Perinatal Life Support project, he went looking for an internship to complete his bachelor's degree and found LifeTec Group™. Despite this not being the obvious choice for an industrial design internship, Brent is not one to avoid a challenge and picked up the phone anyway. Not long after, he came by for his first introduction to the company, which was very positive for both sides.

At LifeTec Group™, he has completed his Industrial Design internship on improving our BioLiver platform, during which he was hired as Marketing Communications Assistant. After his internship, he did his graduation project on the development of an organ transport device, together with LifeTec Group. 

After graduating with honors from his Bachelor's program in Industrial Design, he is currently pursuing further studies in Industrial Design at Eindhoven University of Technology with a focus on Research, Design, and Development, while also enrolled as a secondary student in Biomedical Engineering (with a specialization in Medical Device Design) at the University of Twente. In addition to his academic pursuits, he dedicates 8 hours per week to working for LifeTec Group in Marketing and Communications.
