I was heading home after my dentist appointment for some spro cleansing among other things (sans harsh scrubbing mind you-benszo) when what to my wondering eyes should appear at the bus stop... but Brett Walker, his lovely wife, and their sleepy just-turned-one baby.
I was glad to chat him up about NWRBC since I botched my plans to attend it last weekend. Brett, you'll remember, broke to the finals this year and performed quite admirably from what I've read. I first met Brett back at the 2007 NWRBC when I was live blogging the festivities with Zoka's Wes and Nikki. Brett had the privilege of being the only performance that I accidentally erased. I had worked extra hard on his, too, with us sharing a name and his unparalleled facial hair making me question my own mutton-choppy-ness. I still feel like a doofus.
Well enough about this Brett... more about Brett Walker.
It sounds like Zoka is keeping Brett's coffee journey busy and interesting-- helping with store activities, training folks, and even traveling to new accounts to help them get dialed in. When Brett's not exploring the outer reaches of the coffee-verse, he can be found affectionately stroking his enviably-long beard and spending time with his terrific wife and kid-o.
Keep up the good work Brett!
