Brett is a software engineer at Google Waterloo working on the parsing of email receipts from e-commerce sites (if you have seen the shipment notification card in Google Now, that's his team providing the data).
He has also been a Python core developer for over a decade, and is currently the only active core developer in Canada. His latest significant contribution to Python was importlib, a pure Python re-implementation of import which became the default in Python 3.3.
Brett currently lives in Guelph, ON with his wife, Andrea, and cat who is too cute and smart for her own good (but that doesn't make him a cat person; his wife thinks otherwise).
