Born in Iran, Trent developed a love and interest in cinematography thanks to his film director/actor uncle who took him to the cinemas as a boy. They would have long discussions about the films they saw together and his uncle would assign Trent to write essays on those films. The value of scripting and understanding how the camera was a large part the storytelling process anchored his passion to the filmmaking world. One year Trent’s father bought him a small Casio keyboard. Suddenly he was exploring with composing, music and sound.
At the age of 13, Trent’s life was abruptly uprooted as his family fled the war in Iran and emigrated to Sweden. In a country he was not familiar with as well as the frustrations of needing to learn a new language, Trent turned to his love of films and music as an escape. He bought cameras and gear on his own to make films starring his younger brothers. In High School he focused on Media Arts courses, quickly capturing the attention of his teachers who encouraged his talents. Setting his sites high and being open to either a career in sound design or film, he pursued sound, being accepted to one of the top sound colleges in Sweden. After, he left for London to specialize even further in sound design and music production. Landing a job as a sound designer with a large post-production firm in Sweden enveloped Trent in the world of commercial sound as he worked on numerous projects for the Volvo Company, oftentimes traveling the world doing on-location sound. These experiences renewed his interest in filmmaking, so he began networking with directors and producers which lead to sound design projects for a series of different short film projects. These accumulated projects garnered him sound design awards nominations at Cannes Film Festivals as well as winning at Hamburg’s World Media Festivals, France Epica Awards, and nominations in the US, Los Angeles, at the Maverick Movie Awards. Working in the US became the focus as well as going back to school to revisit his interest in filmmaking. In Los Angeles, Trent became a film major student where he began to piece together the fine art of sound design and composing as it relates to the filmmaking/storytelling process. Projects come his way as he submerged himself into the film community, gaining sound design work on several feature films, short films, and music videos.
