Brogren has portrayed Snake since his teen years, as a student in Degrassi Junior High and Degrassi High, and then as a media teacher and principal in Degrassi: The Next Generation. He is the only actor to appear in every season of the Degrassi franchise, and is also a regular cast member in each season. Brogren was the first Canadian actor to use the word "fuck" on Canadian primetime television, on the Degrassi High TV movie, School's Out! when he was discussing Joey Jeremiah's sexual escapades with Tessa Campanelli.
In 1999, Brogren starred in the music video for "Rock Past It" by London pop-metal band, Scratching Post.
Brogren made his directing debut with Degrassi of the Dead, a non-canonical horror episode, which aired on Halloween 2007. The 15 minute webisode depicted several Degrassi characters attempting to escape from other characters who had become zombies as a result of eating genetically modified food. The show was followed by a behind-the-scenes/making-of presentation during which he was introduced as the director. He has directed many episodes since, and become a series producer in the eleventh season.
Brogren is one of two directors of The L.A. Complex which, like Degrassi, was produced by Epitome Pictures.
