Brie Eley has wanted to be an actress since she was knee-high to a grasshopper - that's Texan for since "she was real little."
As an actress and content creator, her journey has brought her from community theaters in Sugar Land, TX to Off-Broadway theaters in New York. While completing her degree at Marymount Manhattan College she minored in Arts Administration. A path that brought her to work in marketing at Second Stage and artistic development at New York Theater Workshop. She studied abroad at Oxford University through the British American Drama Academy, and upon her return began working in New York as well as regionally at Actor's Theatre of Louisville and the Kennedy Center. Her connections to the improv community led to We are the Hartmans, a feature film starring Richard Chamberlain that she also produced. After a successful crowdfunding campaign and festival run, the film was sold to Netflix, back when they still sending those red envelopes in the mail.
Now based in Los Angeles, Brie has melded her love of the craft with an appreciation for the business of show. She spent 3 years producing branded content for AOL Studios, successfully produced her own short which advanced to the finals of the NBC Short Cuts festival, and her award-winning short was acquired by Viacom. All of this was maintained while she maintained an active presence in the Los Angeles sketch comedy community (The Pack, UCB, iO West) and booked tentpoles like Grey's Anatomy, 2 Broke Girls, Criminal Minds, Brooklyn 99 and more!
She loves to see good people winning and is excited to keep growing in the entertainment industry. After a dynamic year that included more than 10 national commercials and multiple tv bookings, Brie felt it was time to share her experiences in two exciting and interactive ways - consulting actors and creators navigating the industry navigation and leading classes and workshops for personal and professional success!

I have had such an exciting and varied journey as an actress. Between moving to and multiple moves within New York, working in regional theater, moving to Los Angeles and stage and screen time that included performance art, musical theater, Shakespeare, independent film, sketch comedy, multi-cam comedy, dramas and more - I have truly done a little bit of everything!
After more than 20 years in the business and two dynamic pandemic years that included multiple tv bookings and national commercials, felt it was time to share my experiences in two exciting and interactive ways - by consulting actors and creators navigating the industry and by leading classes and workshops for personal and professional success!
No question is too small, truly! And I love to see good people winning.
Let's lock a time, to get you winning.
