After graduating with a degree in interpersonal communication, he became a technology expert and has had a distinguished technical career. He presented at technical conferences worldwide for companies like Microsoft, authored books, and was awarded Microsoft’s distinguished “Most Valuable Professional” award for 9 years.
Brett’s true passion through this time was not only “inner work.” but also teach teaching mindfulness and meditation in many forms. He studied Hakomi, a mindfulness-based somatic psychology, with founder Ron Kurtz and trained in group leadership under the guidance of Amina Knowlan, creator of Matrix Leadership. In addition, he taught beginning and advanced meditation for several years at the Lotus Center in Okla. City and established the Quest Institute meditation center in Dallas. He has a few meditations online and creates custom recordings for clients specifically for their needs.
He credits much of his professional success in the corporate world to skills and tools learned from the accomplished teachers he sought out. “Mindfulness has helped in every aspect of my professional and personal life. I believe passionately that it’s the most important skill a person can develop as it can transform not only your life but the world.”
After obtaining several coach certifications, he developed and teaches The Mindful Coach Method to help “bridge the gap” so coaches can experience and use coaching presence, coach-centered mindfulness, and the somatic techniques he has found so essential in his work, yet are often missing in coach training.
Brett is on a mission in his work as a coach, teacher, speaker, and author to help people be more present and connected to their authentic voice, and the world itself. He specializes in mindful communications and coach training so we can connect authentically, speak truly, and listen deeply. What does the world need more than this?
Certifications include International Coaching Federation, Somatic-Wellness & Mindfulness Coach, and Mindful Facilitator by the Institute for Organizational Mindfulness. He’s also an alumni of the Inner MBA by Sounds True, and has hundreds of hours of training in Hakomi, Matrix Group Leadership, Martial Art, Contact Improvisation and others.
