Bret as a mischievous toddler

Greetings
My name is Bret and this is my resume.

About Me

I am a bit of a web nerd with an addiction to ColdFusion, jQuery and Bootstrap. While at work, I enjoy creating dynamic, accessible web applications that simplify end users' lives. When I am not writing code at work, I have a passion for books, college football, disc golf and cheesy movies from the 80's, and love spending time with my girlfriend.
