That being said, you probably want to know what Trent is really like and what makes him tick. First, he loves to teach adults. For most of his life he's had a special awareness of what makes for effective teaching. And he's made it a quest for greater understanding and application in his computer classes. Read about his CDP method of training.
Another thing about Trent. He loves to discover new places, especially beautiful ones. Here he in the Rockies--one of his favorite spots in the world.
