BiographyEdit

On the defunct official Half-Life website, his function was described as follows: "Brett's craftsmanship as a musician is matched only by his ability to create traps which snare, snag and frag unwary explorers in 3D environments. Valve lured Brett mid-way through his final year at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and a promising career in biochemistry. A hard-assed New Yorker, Brett continues to deny Seattle's claim to being the birthplace of espresso."[4]

  • He designed levels for the Black Mesa Research Facility.[5]
  • Designed and built prototypes to establish design foundation for Half Life.
  • Partnered with engineers to pioneer the scripting system used in Half-Life.
