Jen Messier

Co-founder of Brooklyn Brainery

Jen and Jonathan Soma started the Brainery in 2010 as a way to keep learning new things in New York City without going broke. They've been at it for five and a half years and Jen manages all day-to-day operations and have hosted thousands of classes on everything from astronomy to zombie makeup.

Jen's lived in NYC since 2006, studied art history in college, and keeps busy canning most anything she can get her hands on.
