Brett grew up on the water in Florida. He moved to Colorado in 2001 and took his first kayak lesson in 2002 in Myers Pool through Colorado Whitewater. He holds the very distinguished title of being the only person to every win a kayak from a CW raffle twice (2002 & 2005). In addition to CW, he also participates in another group called LGBTQ Whitewater. He loves snowboarding, soccer, and traveling, but he would rather be kayaking.
