After moving around Alberta for a couple years with his family, he finally settled down in the Calgary area. In 2005 Brett attended post secondary education at SAIT where Brett found his calling in Design.
Since graduating in 2007 from Mechanical Design Technology, Brett has worked at many prestigious design and manufacturing companies where he has had the opportunity to build public art, electronics enclosures, architectural features, and heavy oil and gas equipment. Brett currently leads a design team at a local stainless steel manufacturer where he leads large scale custom manufacturing projects in the world of architecture and construction.
If I could give advice to anyone, there are 3 things that I would say:
- Initiate - Your intrinsic motivation is key. If you don't love what you're doing stop. If you ever say to yourself "I wish I could.." then stop wishing and do. If you every feel like you're not moving forward, then move forward.
- Execute - We are our own worst enemies. The fear of failure, sometimes the fear of success? Don't procrastinate and just do.
- Find your passion - Not everyone is meant to be working a 9-5 job. If you ever think to yourself that you would rather be running your own restaurant, maybe you should be?
To close, I want to say thank you for your support and electric excitement as we #LightUpYYC.
You Rock Calgary!
