About Brett

Brett is a passionate artist turned teacher, who found his passion in what the new and evolving world has to give. When he is not practicing his old CG arts, he is trying other technologies like laser cutting, vacuum forming, and even car maintenance. When all of that isn't enough he enjoys building with his hands or even just going on a hike. The real importance is that what matters most in these is the accomplishment, the experience, and the people. This is why Brett's goal is to share with people, and teaching is one of the greatest ways to do so!
