My name is Brent Connell, I live on an off-grid homestead in Black Forest with my wife Courtney. We have lived in the Colorado Springs area since 2006 after serving on active duty in the U.S. Air Force. After separating from the military, I completed a Master’s degree in Environmental Science from American Military University. While working through college I had several opportunities for a wide diversity of jobs from managing a car wash to serving as a seasonal Park Ranger with Colorado Parks and Wildlife. However, the one profession that I have almost always been involved with is home improvement and construction. Working on residential homes for the last two decades has given me experience and insight on the proper and correct methods of home construction and improvements. My wife and I also enjoy all the wonderful attributes of Colorado that make it such a great state to live and spend much of our free time trail running in the mountains, training for the next ultra-marathon, backpacking, fishing or just enjoying the outdoors.
