Barrett currently serves as the senior writer for Legacy Community Health, the largest federally qualified health center in Texas. Over the last near-decade, he has worked with clients large and small throughout Texas and beyond.
He is the founder and editor-in-chief of Hearth & Coffin Literary Journal.
His byline has appeared in the Houston Press, OutSmart Magazine, Spectrum South, and Health Care Advocates International - to name a few. His ghostwriting has appeared in the Houston Chronicle and New York Times, but nobody knows it was him.
While studying Creative Writing at University of Houston, he began freelancing when he tired of his day job and hasn't slowed down since. His specialty is narrative storytelling, but he has also worked in copywriting (both long- and short-form) and journalism.
He has lived the life of a starving writer in a 1930s studio in downtown, enjoyed crepes on the banks of the Seine, camped in his Ford Focus while traversing the United States, and almost learned rudimentary algebra in college.
He's exceptionally talented at navigating public transit and lives for the noise and the bustle of the city. His love of adventure and breadth of experience informs and directs his style.
Barrett is an Associate Member of the American Society of Journalists & Authors.
