BIOGRAPHY

Brett started his professional career in the social sciences, earning a B.S. in Psychology from Midwestern State University in 1991. A few years later, he switched to Civil Engineering and obtained a B.S. and an M.S. in Civil Engineering in 1997 and 1999, respectively. In 2005, Brett started his own consulting firm.Currently he holds an SE license in California, Nevada, Arizona, Oregon, Texas and Maryland. With no formal business training or classes, He decided to go back to school for an MBA and graduated in Spring of 2015. This experiencehas really added another dimension to my mind.

ABSTRACT


The world is not as it seems. This also pertains to the built environment. Energyflow is in everything. Structures that we often think of as "rigid" are actuallyvibrant with energy and have their own uniquepersonalities (natural period, etc.).Likewise, every earthquake also has its own personality, energy content andfrequency signatures. When the energy from an earthquake enters a structureand interacts with its energy there is a dance of energies and it is analogous to amusician (theearthquake) playing a musical instrument (the structure).
