Industry Hero - Jonathan Soma

February 23rd - Jonathan Soma - Founder of Brooklyn Brainery

Soma was born in the South, is what someone from the North would say. He cooks for fun, codes for hire, and has more hobbies than can dance on the head of a pin. His work has been featured everywhere from Gawker to The New York Times. Jonathan is the founder of The Brooklyn Brainery, a hipster schoolhouse started by a pair of underemployed polymaths, where students can learn abstruse subjects like the secret lives of bacteria, taught by teachers with few teaching credentials. By yoking together the craftsy movement that brought countless Mason jars of homemade pickles to Brooklyn pantries and the academic fetishism that gives rise to corduroy clubs and literary blogs, the schoolhouse offers what it calls “accessible, community-driven, crowd-sourced education.”
