Brett lives on a little island just outside of Seattle, WA. Brett married the cutest ballerina he could find while studying at BYU. They lived in Utah for a time, working for a large semiconductor company and then relocated to Seattle in 2000. We have 3 boys. We are a musical family and add song and strumming to just about everything we can. We also enjoy the Washington coast and heartily root for the Seahawks.
