Brett has been a creative director and painter for well over a decade, leading creative teams of art directors, designers, and production talent. He headed the design team at Arthur Andersen for seven years, and worked as a CG Artist at a creative firm in Hollywood catering to major film studios (ColumbiaTristar, Paramount, and Disney) and top-ten ad agencies in L.A. (Bozell, McCann, Grey, FCB, Creative Artists Agency).
He recently held a senior creative position at Amgen in Thousand Oaks for nearly eight years, and afterward founded Slingshot Studios, Inc. in Westlake Village specializing in launching brands such as Protein Pathways and Coastview Capital, headed by former Amgen CEO and SVPs. He has a degree in design, studied at American Film Institute, and on his first reel as a director won first place and Best of Festival nomination at the International Film Festival in Chicago. Brett is also a successful drummer, winning competitive surfer, and has worked as a certified Personal Fitness Trainer.
Having grown up around the beaches of LA’s South Bay, and Ventura County farther north, his love affair with the ocean is evident in many of his works.
