CO FOUNDER: BRENN COLLEEN @NewJackBrenn Los Angeles Writer and Creative Director Brenn Colleen is a holds no punches, writer born in Hollywood, California. Prior to Co-founding Be You along side, friend, PR guru and business partner, J.Ryan La Cour, Brenn was initially introduced to the art of shaping words at the age of sixteen through song writing. While she is still with BMI, the self-proclaimed music enthusiast began stretching her literary legs as she got older in various respective arenas including but not limited to, fashion, public relations and most recently in the choppy waters of writing for Television. Colleen considers herself somewhat of a hermit with a taste for trouble and says she’d go insane without the outlet of writing everything down. Love Letters and Lighter Fluid is her latest labor of love and is due to be published winter 2017. The book is said to be a collection of poetry darkly documenting her string of ill fated love affairs. She continues to flourish with writing, leaving Network TV and the restraints of corporate America to pen and develop a more than sarcastic mockumentary entitled “Sleepless in Los Angeles.” The tongue in cheek writer says that her endless pursuit of being the woman she has always expected herself to be, is still a work in progress. Colleen, not only offers an unguarded approach to mostly all that she has a hand in but lends that perspective to BYC when taking on the labor intensive role of Creative Director and Co-founder of Be You. Concentrating on more controversial philanthropic initiatives from at risk youth to police brutality, racial profiling and LGBT rights, Brenn brings an equal amount of both attitude and substance to Be You. As the daughter of a Spanish hippie and a Black Panther activism is in her blood and she’d have it no other way quoted saying that her only loyalty in life is to those loyal to her and to the truth. Whilst, continuing to utilize her literary talents both in creative and corporate arenas while flirting with song writing for film and television, Colleen typically refers to The Be You Campaign and Foundation as she and J.Ryan’s “love child”.
