Born in Greensboro, NC, Brett’s first job was as a movie theater usher at age sixteen. Brett continued to work in several industries while also staying active in service clubs, marching alto-saxophone in band, and swimming throughout high school and college.
Brett developed his writing at UNC’s school of Journalism and Mass Communication. There, a media law course sparked Brett’s interest in legal studies. Before Brett earned his Juris Doctorate, he obtained his paralegal certification after working as a project manager.
At Elon Law, Brett maintained high grades while assuming leadership roles such as Chair of the Honor Council and Managing Editor of the Law Review. He took time to serve the school and local community through programs such as Innocence Project and the Humanitarian Immigration Law Clinic.
Brett continues his involvement in the local community through volunteer efforts with Elon Law and the Greensboro Bar Association. He enjoys spending his free time staying physically active outdoors, trying new recipes, attending concerts, taking in a movie, or putting together the occasional Lego set.
