Hi, my name is Brett. I'm a software developer and creative person (with a focus on writing). I live in Pennsylvania.
Prior to moving to Pennsylvania, I grew up in the Northeast, living in New Jersey and Vermont. I spent a few years in the Pacific Northwest. I try to live a simple life and pursue my passions. I enjoy reading, writing, walking, and watching movies.
I make my living doing software development. I really enjoy sharing what I’ve learned by making screencasts and blog posts.
When I’m not working with code, I enjoy exploring the outdoors, reading, and working on creative projects. Running has become a significant part of my life. I mostly run on trails. I dabble with writing fiction, drawing comics, and making short films.
I love food, and I’ve eaten a plant-based, vegan diet for over six years. Cooking is a true joy for me.
Some of my favorite creators are Haruki Murakami, Ursula K. Le Guin, David Lynch, William Gibson, and Tsutomu Nihei.
A perfect day off for me would be waking up and working on creative projects for a little bit. Then I’d go on a long trail run. Afterward, I’d cook a nice meal, go for a walk around town, and wind down with a book while listening to a jazz record. (Am I a walking, talking, breathing cliché?)
