Brett met the Jesuits at Gonzaga Prep in Spokane, Washington and attended the University of Portland earning a BA in accounting.

Brett has been missioned to study Mexican cuisine (and philosophy) at the Jesuit University in Guadalajara and enjoys eating (always), running (sometimes) and sharks (never).
