Hi, my name is Brett. I'm a storyteller focused on writing. I live in Portland, Oregon.

Prior to moving to the Pacific Northwest, I grew up in the Northeast, living in New Jersey and Vermont. I try to live a simple life and pursue my passions, which are writing, reading, cooking, and walking.

Growing up I barely read, but that all changed when read 1Q84 by Haruki Murakami in 2013. My mind was opened to fictional literature, and my love of it has only grown since, so much so that I started to write my own stories in September 2015.

Since then I have been working on small and medium-sized projects, and I aim to self-publish my first novel in the middle of 2017. I want to support myself with my writing, and I am diligently working towards that goal.

I currently make my living doing software development. I run Monoso, small consulting firm that specializes in building web applications. I have been building software for over a decade, and while I enjoy it, I daydream about doing creative work all day long. My prior technical writing and talks can be found in the Archive.

I really enjoy Haruki Murakami’s novels and David Lynch’s films. I love getting lost in dark and mysterious worlds.
