Have U Heard wouldn’t be able to get you all your favorite recaps and the latest gossip without the help of our writers. Check out who our writers are below:
About Me: I am an aspiring screenwriter from New Jersey. I enjoy “Back to the Future,” Robert Rodriguez films, cheesy 80’s movies, “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia,” and anything Broken Lizard. I have a degree in English, with a creative writing concentration and a minor in film – translation: I like movies and know how to write about them creatively in English. I think highly of J.J. Abrams, Judd Apatow, “Lost,” “South Park,” DeLoreans, and the Seattle Mariners. My career aspirations include but are not limited to – befriend a short alien and feed him Reese’s Pieces, become a police chief on a small island and kill a vengeful great white shark, team up with friends on a quest to find a one-eyed pirate’s treasure, and own a cute little furball as a pet, but never feed him after midnight.
Television Recaps: Modern Family, Chuck, True Blood
About Me: I am 23 years old and aspire to work in the music business. I found my passion for writing when I started my own music blog, Just Push Play, and my love for it grew even more when I began writing for Have U Heard. I have a degree in Music Industry and have been singing since I was a little girl. I love all types of music from Lady Gaga, to Aerosmith, to Broadway musicals. I’m a huge fan of Reality TV, but also love Entourage and How I Met Your Mother. When I’m not writing you can find me at the beach, spending time with friends and family, and rooting on the New York Yankees! I’m so happy to be writing for Have U Heard and hope you enjoy reading!
About Me: I have been writing since as early as high school (and no I won’t be saying what year that was – lol) and have continued ever since. I currently work at ABC full time, freelance on the side, and enjoy reading and writing in my past time. I love dogs and have a 10 year old schipperke named Veno who is truly my baby. Working for a TV network I of course love television, but shh, I don’t always watch channel 7. My favorites are The Good Wife (of course since I write the recap), Modern Family, Castle, and some reality shows like Jerseylicious, RHOBH, to name just a few. In addition to all these things I love to cook & bake so a lot of my TV watching gets done in the kitchen while I am doing one of the two. I love writing for Have U Heard and hope you enjoy my recaps & occasional celebrity bios.

About Me: I am a twenty-something freelance writer and social media editor, originally from Virginia, y’all! It’s been a dream since yearbook class in high school to cover entertainment and pop culture. My loves include my family, friends, coffee, reading, roadtrips, and red velvet cupcakes. I’m a classy fan of movies and music. I love to attend premieres and set locations and be a part of the action. I created a Facebook pop culture fan page with a couple of friends that has grown to be much bigger than we ever anticipated, and I’ve loved every minute of it. I’ve had a lot of exposure to the film industry in the last year, which has only increased my interest in that side of entertainment. While I inch my way closer to it, I’m having a blast writing TV recaps and movie reviews for HUH, and I hope you enjoy reading them.
I am a 22 year old graduate of the University of North Carolina Wilmington with a degree in English and Journalism. I love everything pop culture, especially TV and Films and am an aspiring celebrity stalker (Kristen Wiig watch out!) Currently I work freelance as a journalist and editorial assistant and I have dreams of one day writing my own book or becoming an editor of an awesome celebrity pop culture website like HaveUHeard.net. I absolutely love writing reviews every week and am so thankful to the wonderful staff at HaveUHeard for letting me explore my passion for writing (and for giving me a spot on their team of already incredibly talented contributors!) Have fun reading guys and if, for some reason I haven’t completely annoyed you already, follow me on Twitter @jessica_toomer
I was lured to New York City by the films of Woody Allen and decided to stay anyway after attending NYU. I show my love for the greatest, most exciting city in the world by either staying in all the time and watching TV or going to the movies. Occasionally, I’ll go out at night and take photos, which the NYPD just loves. Let me tell you. The judge and I had a good laugh about that. You can read more about what I think and how much cheese I eat at angriestgeek.wordpress.com.
Bryan Brunati likes to start off every introduction by mentioning the fact that he grew up in a tough neighborhood, where an average of one person a day died of boredom. He also once went a week without internet. He mentions these details because the majority of successful people always make sure to let us know they had a rough childhood. So yes, in a way, Bryan is already calling himself a success. Bryan graduated from the University of Central Florida with a degree in English, and quickly realized he had made a horrible mistake when people would point and laugh every time he said he hoped an English degree would help him land a job. Determined to make a name for himself, Bryan stalked celebrities until he learned something called “restraining orders” were a real thing. At 23 years old, Bryan is more than ready to mold a career for himself out of cookie dough, if possible. Bryan loves writing, social media, television, movies, sarcasm, awkward jokes, holds the record for consecutive first dates without a second date, and once started talking in third person and never stopped. Bryan also tweets at @awkwardlyquirky and can be contacted at email@example.com
About Me: I moved to NYC after graduating from Northwestern University two years ago with degrees in Theater and Creative Writing for the Media. I’m simultaneously pursuing my passions for acting and entertainment writing, which conveniently gives me an excuse to watch LOTS of television. You name it, I watch it: intense dramas (Breaking Bad), political thrillers (Homeland), comedies (Girls), medical procedurals (Grey’s Anatomy), courtroom dramas (The Good Wife), sitcoms (Parks And Recreation), competition shows (The Voice), sci-fi (Fringe), horror (American Horror Story), fantasy (Game Of Thrones), musicals (Glee) and soaps (Revenge) — just for starters (the latest count is around 33). I’m thrilled to be recapping two of my favorite shows for HaveUHeard: American Horror Story and Glee. I also love movies of all genres (most recent favorite: Perks Of Being A Wallflower). You can check out my blog for reviews of all the latest TV shows and movies at GetScreenAddiction.blogspot.com. You can also contact me at MrScreenAddict@gmail.com if you need a kindred spirit to talk to about your TV obsession.
