I’m a thinker at heart. I’m a creator by nature. Let’s discover, be challenged, and solve problems.
I enjoy evolving complex enterprise product strategy to drive design thinking built solutions. My career began in fast-paced ad agencies and embraced lean methods for planning and executing value driven services.
I’m passionate about data-driven strategy, going all in while having fun, and leading by example.
Strategy begins with research, hedging risk while discovering opportunities and outlining success metrics to achieve results. Continual qualitative and quantitative research conducted throughout the product lifecycle insures accomplishing the right tasks for the right people. User-centered processes navigated by UX achieve better results through contribution by everyone
Supporting lean design and development requires finesse and encouragement promoting product lifecycle progress. Failing early and often enables pivoting to reach valuable releases for solving important customer needs.
Fostering established product modernization in a changing world takes focus, mindfulness and communication. Growing awareness of user-centered thought processes increases the adoption urgency for business relevance and competitive advantages.
Creative and hardworking, Blake produced phenomenal work for my company and always kept in consideration project budget, turnaround time and any creative direction given. We relied on him to help us with various types of design work, including some projects that needed front-end development attention; without hesitation he jumped right in and helped. I look forward to working with Blake again.
Blake is an insightful, creative, and knowledgeable designer. I worked with Blake while developing an enterprise class healthcare software product. Blake provided valuable insight and ideas for direct solutions to user experience, usability, and user interface needs. He also provided great process guidance to help us better achieve our UX and UI goals. I would welcome the opportunity to work with Blake again.
Blake and I were peer leaders in an organization that was (re)discovering UX design. He has a keen eye for design, and a strong sense of what will have the most positive effect on a product. He also works equally well with designers, developers, and product managers, making him an outstanding partner in our small team. I learned a great deal from him, which I always value highly in a coworker, and the work he is doing for the company will have a lasting impact on the quality of their products. I'd be pleased to work with Blake again.
Blake and I worked together for more than three years and I was always impressed with his range of skills and problem solving ability. Blake was essential to our team as we worked on some very complex applications including an award-winning iPad app for travel agents around the world. With a keen eye for design details and a technical mind for front-end code, Blake is a powerhouse asset to any UX team.
I believe Blake to be an extremely talented individual. He is organized, dedicated, smart, and has the ability to pay attention to detail that is second to none. He is very observant and insightful. I believe him to be a valuable asset for any team. If I had a position available in my organization right now I would hire him in a heartbeat.
