Earlier in his career, he instructed business and communications in the Community College System. Kent appeared on CNBC Asia (Delhi) as an international business expert in 2004.
Kent was in India when terrorists attacked the Indian parliament and in Thailand as the terrorists attacked the south and later when the tsunami came ashore.
