Bret's knowledge of all aspects of Information Technology is second to none.'...'Bret's technical skills are only matched by his personal skills. He has the ability to build relationships with customers and coworkers. I would recommend him for any engineering opportunity.

Top notch Microsoft expertise, and I'm still trying to figure out how he keeps as current as he does. If there is something new in the IT field, he will know about it, and his solutions are rock solid!
...Working with Bret was like hitting a gold mine. Every conversation I had with him enlightened me more. Bret is the type of engineer I strive to be in the future.
It has been an honor and a pleasure to work with Bret and his team of volunteers over the past two years. In partnering with Bret, we have had the ability to show our community the tremendous impact civic minded volunteers can have on public engagement. Bret is creative and enthusiastic, but also realistic and respects existing city policy. I would highly recommend any community organization or municipal government to partner with Bret and his volunteers. They have been such a pleasure to work with and I look forward to seeing all that the future has in store for our partnership.
Bret is one of the most talented IT professionals I've met to date. I've had the privilege of hiring Bret for several of my clients over the years and the feedback is nothing but stellar. Not only does Bret have a strong background in a variety of areas, he's often the Subject Matter Expert I go to when looking for high level technical candidates. He stays plugged in and is thought very highly of in the IT industry. He's not just a solid IT professional; he's got an amazing personality that allows him to be a huge asset to any organization. I’ll continue to seek Bret’s background and knowledge simply because I know what my clients will get – a top notch individual!
