BRENT SCARPO has over twenty years of experience as an

through film and television projects, books, special presentations, exhibits, and motivation speaking events. His newest programs are entitled, “Why Do You Hate Me?” a presentation that looks at how people sabotage their personal success and “Coming Out – The Never Ending Story”, a unique look at the coming out process for the GLBT, “The Road to Hollywood – Careers in the Entertainment Industry” a program that looks at
the various career choices for college students considering a job in the entertainment industry, “Last
