Brett is a multi-skilled journalist for KHOU 11 News, which means he works to gather news across all our platforms, often as a one-man-crew. Brett has spent more than a decade in the news business, starting as a tape editor at the CBS affiliate in Augusta, Ga., while in high school.
Most recently, Brett was in Baton Rouge, La., where he covered several national news stories, including the shooting death of Alton Sterling, and the protest that followed. Brett reported outside the hospital on the Sunday that six Baton Rouge law enforcement officer were shot, and waded through the waters during the worst flooding event in the history of recorded weather.
Storytelling is Brett’s passion. He’s excited to call Houston home, and share with his community what’s happening around them.
