Born in west Texas, Brint is a seventh-generation Irish American whose ancestors emigrated from Tipperary and fought in the Revolutionary War. This lineage, he says, “provides me with a common link to generations of hard-working, risk-taking Irish that achieved amazing things,” and says he is lucky to have also “inherited some of these qualities from my Irish ancestors.”

Brint was appointed by Governor Rick Perry to the board of regents at his alma mater, the University of North Texas, and received the Patriot Award for Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve in 2010. He lives in Dallas with his wife, Amanda, and their five children.
