Bret Hamilton grew up in Kansas City, Missouri, watching way too much television and playing way too much Nintendo. As a result, he became obsessed with creating engaging entertainment for those around him. These pursuits led him to leave his humble beginnings for the big city to study cinematography at Columbia College Chicago. There, he honed his skills and collaborated on hundreds of films, gigs and learning experiences for six years until Chicago winters led him to say, "I want to do something different."
Bret moved to Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, (formerly Saigon) in September 2016. Since then, Bret has produced and led over 30 short documentary, viral content and video productions, establishing himself as a trusted voice and taste-maker in South-East Asia.
