About Me

I’m Brianne. Most people call me Brie. I’m an author, writer, actor, and podcast host.

I graduated from NYU with a degree in Dramatic Literature, Theatre History & Film Studies. I didn’t know what to do with that either so I waitressed a lot. Then I studied acting at Lee Strasberg in New York City, and because I wasn’t booking anything as an actor, I wrote my first play. Hardly anyone saw it, but it was enough for me to think, “Hey, I should give this writing thing a try!” So I tried my luck on Craigslist (I don’t recommend searching for a job there by the way) and landed my first writing gig (which, thankfully, was legitimate and didn’t involve any weird couches or sketchy rooms to rent). Soon after I studied improv and comedic writing at the Second City in Toronto, so, yes, that explains all the quippyness.

Now my writing has appeared in over 60 online publications, including The Washington Post, the BBC, Men’s Health, Elle Canada, and BuzzFeed, and I have published two books with Adams Media and Running Press, respectively. 

I am also the host of two podcasts: “Seriously Single” and “Do You with Brianne Hogan.” By producing these podcasts, I get to talk about what I think defines my purpose in life: encouraging others to carve out a life that’s uniquely their own. 

I have a black cat named Olive and six plants named after the Friends characters — that is, if I don’t kill them soon. The plants, not the cat. Although she probably would deserve it. (Just kidding — she’s my world!)
