Much like the uniqueness of a bourbon from Texas Hill Country, yes, you read that right: a bourbon from Texas; our Modern Men are a unique mix of entrepreneurs and community members who add the flavor to our diverse community. Each week we will highlight one of our Modern Men alongside the beauty and ingenuity of Garrison Brothers.

Combining his passion for social causes with his curiosity for what’s new and next, Kent founded KNEKT TV as a platform to share social issues and provide viewers with practical tools to improve their lives. We sat down to Kent to discuss what it takes to be a Modern Man and what he looks for in a good drink.
