Brett is a certified teacher, firefighter, father, farmer and amateur musician. Born in South Africa, raised in southern Ontario, he has spent his entire adult life in beautiful British Columbia. Brett is a dreamer, an idealist, believer in old fashion values such as courteousness and friendliness, self-sufficiency and inter-dependence.

On the farm they raise chickens, live in nature, grow as much food as they can and cherish the forests around them.
