        *Is a former trained actor in theatre, film & television since childhood.
        *Lifetime member of the International Thespian Society.
        *Was the body-double for Niles Crane (David Hyde Pierce) for two episodes of NBC's "Frasier."
        *Was the body-double for late NBC actor David Strickland for the film "Delivered."
        *Was a high school student in David Lynch's "Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me."
        *Never uses an outline for his scripts because it's all in his head—from start to finish.
        *Has a natural knowledge and use of "structure" for his screenwriting.
        *Because of his knowledge and use of structure and making revisions along the way, his first draft screenplays are also the "final drafts," with no need for 2nd or 3rd drafts.
        *His screenplays had priority reads with a first-look MGM producer in 2001 & 2002.
        *Shares his birthday with Elvis Presley and David Bowie.
        *Witnessed one of the major eruptions of Mt. St. Helens in mid-April 1980. One month before the deadly blast on May 18, 1980.
        *Struggled with Reading Comprehension Disorder all throughout his elementary, middle, and high school years.
        *His paternal ancestry hails from Norway on the genealogy paper trail. But through Y-DNA testing, his surname is the Swedish "Nilsson," revealing his Norweigan forefathers were biologically Swedish. This info was also confirmed on the paper trail. In the 1850s, his Norweigan 3rd great-grandfather changed the surname to "Nelson" upon arrival to the American mid-West.
        *Brett is a modern-day Viking. His paternal Y-DNA is within the genetic branch of I1-L813, a descendant haplogroup of I1 (I-M253). His I1-L813 Y-DNA has been discovered in the graves and remains of ancient Viking men in Scandinavia, and present-day men living in Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Scotland, Ireland, France, and Britain.
