History of Totally Barbados
The brainchild of Totally Barbados is 42-year-old (2017) Brett Callaghan, a popular former jockey from the Garrison Savannah racetrack in Barbados and at Woodbine racetrack in the Canadian city of Toronto. Read more about Brett Callaghan in Barbados.
After retiring from the horse racing game as a professional jockey of 10 years, Brett returned to school in Toronto when he was 24 years old to study and earn his certificate as a qualified Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer (MCSE). Upon earning this certificate Brett worked at CIBC Mortgages Inc. in Toronto for the next 6 years.
Brett quit his job as a Senior Technical Analyst with CIBC Mortgages in Toronto, Canada in March 2005 to embark on his vision to develop an island destination guide. Brett envisioned a website covering every topic, angle, and every aspect of anything anyone would want to know about Barbados.
Owner, Founder and Managing Director
Even with the existing websites covering various topics about Barbados, Brett thought it vital to encompass all aspects of Barbadian life. It would appeal to visitors and locals that run the gamut from booking their vacations, building a home, establishing a business and investing in the economy.
This website was to be ‘totally’ about Barbados.
