Hi, My Name Is Barret

Hi there! I’m Barret. I wear many hats. Father, husband, manager, developer, gamer, blogger, speaker, model railroader, and so forth. I’ve been blessed greatly by this industry, and so this site is one way I try to give a little bit back. When I can find the time, I add a bit of my coding knowledge and experience to share with whoever might find it of worth.

I hope you find something of use here. I also have a creative side. If that interests you, check out the link to my creative side at the top of the page.
