Born in Cincinnati, he has also lived in Jacksonville, Florida, and in Jackson, Tennessee. He currently calls Florence, Alabama home. The Estes Echo interview staff sat down with Brett recently to get to know him better.

Estes Echo: First, everyone wants to know: How do you pronounce your name?
Brett: Ba-reht.

Estes Echo: [Thinking we were talking about his last name]: What does that rhyme with?

Estes Echo: [Thinking those are odd choices]: What about pizza toppings? What do you like?

Estes Echo: What are you looking forward to about your job this summer?

Estes Echo: What’s a scripture you return to again and again?
Brett: “My son, beware of anything beyond these. Of making many books there is no end, and much study is a weariness of the flesh. The end of the matter: all has been heard. Fear God and keep his commandments, for this is the whole duty of man.”—Ecclesiastes 12:12-13
