Episode 3 – highlights Phoodie app Founder, DJ/Producer, and former NASA employee, Brooklyn Earick.
Brooklyn Earick grew up in the small town of Bellefontaine, Ohio just outside of Columbus, and attended THE Ohio State University where he studied Electrical Engineering.
Fresh out of college, Brooklyn was signed to a record label as a music producer and began touring the world DJ’ing his music. He played shows at some of the biggest festivals and nightclubs, from LA to NYC, Tokyo to London, Ibiza and major events like the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver, Canada and the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah.
After nearly a decade, Brooklyn took a break from music and started working as an Electrical Engineer in the small spacecraft division at NASA Ames in Mountain View, California. It was during his time at NASA that he was introduced to software engineering, and after realizing what a powerful tool it could be, started taking classes and brainstorming ideas – and alas, Phoodie was born.
Phoodie is a social utility for discovering restaurants, recipes and other foodies both nearby and worldwide. Phoodie officially launches on December 15th, 2016, but has amassed 100,000 downloads and been ranked as high as #11 Food and Drink in the App Store during it’s year in public beta.
Brooklyn also continues to make music, releasing his own tracks, and collaborating with some of the biggest names in Hip Hop and EDM.
