|OUR QUESTIONS||BRETT’S ANSWERS|
|A few things first:||
I grew up in a pretty small town near the Canadian border. There were around 12 kids in my class between Kindergarten and 8th grade. I started my first business when I was 11, designing logos for companies on a homemade computer with a Windows 2.1 operating system. I won a national essay writing contest in 11th grade. I tried out as a pitcher for the Atlanta Braves when I was 17 and I didn’t get a callback. I worked summers through college in a few resort town restaurants working from a dishwasher to sous chef, and am trained in classic French cuisine. I’m very lucky to be married to my beautiful wife Synthia. I have two children, a girl Amaya, and a boy Hunter who are 15 and 16. I own a Land Rover parts and restoration business, and I’m a certified strength coach. I currently hold 9 NY state powerlifting records, 1 world record, and am currently ranked 23 in the country for my age and weight class. I also have a bunch of tattoos.
