About the Author

From performing on stage to directing and designing set and technical elements for musicals, Brett Axler knew he had marketable skills that could take him further than eight shows a week on Broadway. After discovering his passion for nighttime spectaculars at Disney, Brett pursued his dreams of working for Disney before finding out that his skills were far more lucrative in industries outside of entertainment. Freshman year of college by total accident, he landed his first big gig with the NFL as a broadcast engineer for the Philadelphia Eagles, before being hired on to half a dozen other sports teams and media networks by his senior year of college. Brett’s whirlwind career continued as he was hired to lead the opening of a 280-million-dollar professional sports arena, produce more than two dozen shows throughout Philadelphia and New York, and was eventually pursued by his original dream employer Disney. He spent four years working for Disney Parks Live Entertainment in Orlando, Florida while freelancing as a technical director for corporate events around the country which led to his most recent endeavor as a Project Manager for Google in Silicon Valley. Brett currently resides in San Jose, CA.
