beyond the bio

Discerning and active listener.  Present.  Affirming.  insightful, thought-provoking questions.  Brett creates and cultivates a safe space for others to be heard.  He is trustworthy and challenges without judgement.  Oh, but he can break the tension with his timely sense of humor.  Brett is driven: he balances competing priorities with working, playing hard, learning and growing.  


Brett has had to face his own challenges. He has learned to walk through and grow from difficult seasons. In essence, you will engage with someone who is authentic, empathetic and fearless in the face of human struggles. Brett doesn't turn away from difficulties, but chooses to face them in order to understand how they impact human behavior.

You will engage with a curious person, one who's always learning to balance self-confidence with humility. Brett does not have all the right answers, but can lead you to a place of greater self discovery, worth and confidence. You will be seen, heard and valued. You will lead better.
