Brett began his career in Los Angeles, as a Post Production specialist at award winning facilities Encore Hollywood and The Post Group. He worked on projects and with people that ran the gamut from Pee Wee's Playhouse to the X-Files, and Wim Wenders to Richard Simmons. (Yep, really just said that) He learned to excel around seemingly larger than life situations and personalities, and learned the best practices, processes and tools from some of the most skilled specialists in Hollywood.


He also spent many evenings in L.A. behaving like an absolute imbecile - moonlighting as an improvisational/sketch actor at The Groundlings, The Comedy Store and the Acme Theater; fronting the hard rock band, Harepeace; and, gaining numerous VO and on camera credits, including a starring role in Gregg Araki’s seminal film, The Living End.


While he obviously enjoys dropping names that could easily crush both of his feet, his greatest source of professional pride and personal happiness comes from the non-profit work he’s done over the years.* Crafting content for SEIU, NARAL, The Department of Education, and more.


He’s experienced the vulnerability of creating and performing, and spent countless hours editing and honing finished content - meaning he brings empathy, drive, a sense of humor, and respect for everyone and everything involved to every project. Making real people enjoy feeling comfortable on camera, communicating ably with skilled and experienced performers and technicians, and attentively listening to clients and stakeholders in order to transform and distill concepts and ideas into engaging stories.
