A Texas native who knew he wanted to be a journalist since he was 11 years old, Brett Voss began his career as a sports writer for the Dallas Morning News in 1983 after working for The Daily Texan at the University of Texas in Austin and The Shorthorn at the University of Texas at Arlington while attending college. Over the last 40 years, his experience includes writing for 10 different newspapers before serving as the publisher of The Clifton Record and Meridian Tribune from 2012-18.

But before that, Brett decided to limit his work in the newspaper business to part-time and moved into the education field in 1991, teaching and coaching athletic as well as academic competition for 22 years. Brett headed the journalism department at Temple High School as it gained state and national acclaim in newspaper, broadcasting, video production and literary magazine. In addition, Brett coached Academic Decathlon at the national level, as well as UIL journalism, speech and debate at the state level.

In the meantime, Voss remained active in the communication business, serving as the outdoors editor for the Temple Daily Telegram from 1989-2004, as well as establishing and running his own video production company from 1995-2008, Master Production Telecommunications & Video (MPTV), producing local commercials and programming, along with independent projects.

After establishing Southern Cross Creative with his wife Simone Wichers-Voss in 2018 and retiring from the newspaper business, Brett served as Marketing & Public Relations Director of Goodall-Witcher Healthcare before returning to education as an English teacher as well as UIL Film & Journalism coach at Clifton High School in 2022.

Since moving to Bosque County in 2008, Brett has remained active in the community, servicing as board president of the Meridian Economic Development Corporation, board president of the Meridian Parks & Recreation, and founding board president of the Bosque Film Society.
