Staff Editor, Truck Trend Network 1510 Articles

Like his colleagues, Brett has a love of cars and trucks that began early, identifying vehicles in the parking lot based on their badges before he could even read. His parents also had to deal with the clutter of magazines, brochures, and sketches littering his room as a kid, to say nothing of the endless arguments between Brett and his older brothers about which vehicles were best. Brett turned to the printed word in college, lucking himself into a job with the Truck Trend Network as a staff editor.
