Hi I'm Brett

I shoot and edit commercials in Spanish for Telemundo Las Vegas. I speak English and Spanish fluently. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a husband to my beautiful wife, and a father to three lovely children. My parents are wonderful people, and I have two sisters and a brother that I love. When I was only ten, my oldest sister was involved in a car accident that left her paralyzed, yet she continues to live her life and keeps a smile on her face all the time. Her attitude keeps me pressing forward, as I understand that nothing can stop me from being happy unless I choose not to be happy. I love my job. It's exciting because I can use my mind to create concepts that work for clients, and then use my skill to bring the concepts to life. I enjoy cars, computers, and bicycling. Every day, I ride my bicycle to and from work, about eight miles each way. I do this to keep fit and to save money. For me, riding helps me to appreciate life so much more, as it is both relaxing and thrilling at the same time. I can view the scenery, smell and sometimes taste all the different and wonderful things in the air, hear the sounds of whatever I may be passing at the time, and best of all, feel the wind in my face and the thrill of speed.

Why I am a Mormon

When I was very young, my world was different. I saw my family, and even though I loved them, I often didn't understand why I was told to stay up in my room, and not come downstairs while my parents had guests over. Then, one day, they changed, and things started changing around my house. We started going to church, and I remember seeing the difference it made in our lives. My sister's accident was a major turning point in my life. Even though I saw the difference in my family life before and after joining the church, I really turned to God due to my concern for my sister. My whole family did, as well, and it brought us even closer. I began to understand that bad things do happen to good people, but good people become stronger and closer to God at these times. Through prayer and reading of scriptures, I learned that God gives us things to overcome. As I ride my bike, and I push myself to do better, my body builds more muscle mass, more efficient blood vessels, and I lose body fat that slows me down. Basically, I become refined, and I get faster. If I never push myself, I will never get stronger. Faith is like muscle, and it has to be exercised in order to get stronger, and that is what God is doing when he gives us something to overcome; he is giving us a new hill to climb with our faith so that we can become stronger.

How I live my faith

There is a scripture in the New Testament where Jesus asks if Peter loves him. Peter responds by saying, "Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee." Jesus then tells him, "Feed my sheep." (John 21:15-17) I love to speak to others about the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, and I especially love helping others to receive the same happiness I have found in knowing our Savior, Jesus Christ. Doing so is like giving a gift to a child, and seeing her face light up as she opens it. I enjoy speaking freely with others and inviting them to church with me.
