I’m Bret. I’m a Martineau, a marketer, a musician, and a Muay Thai fighter.

I’m also into writing, photography, dogs, and the Oxford Comma.

I believe life is about action. It’s about experiencing everything you possibly can and using those experiences to shape a better world for yourself and those around you. I think we’re all unique, so what makes me happy and gives me purpose may not be the same for you, and that’s ok.


The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.

- albert einstein


I don’t believe in doing things simply because “that’s the way these things are done.” In fact, if you try and box me into someone else’s paradigm and expect me to just accept it, you’ve got another thing coming. There are no absolutes. Everything is meant to be tested. Just because something worked in one situation doesn’t mean it will work in all situations.

And lastly, I’ve spent a lot of time studying just about every philosophy and religion, and they all boil down to what I consider my personal mantra:

Don’t Be A Dick.

If there is any way I can help you, please don’t hesitate to reach out. You can text me (858 683 6814) or hit me up on any form of social media (@bretwardjames on all the platforms)
