Hello there, I’m Blake!
And I’m so glad you’re here!
Why? Well, because I love people. I love good conversations. I love great stories. I love big moments in life. And I’m excited to share a few of those things with you while you’re here!
While I’m currently finishing up my degree in Journalism and Emerging Media at Kennesaw State University, I’m working hard toward becoming an on-air personality and correspondent in a major media market. That means on a regular basis you can find me doing anything from working in media around Atlanta, managing social media and creating content for a local nonprofit, working as a producer at the nationally syndicated morning show, The Bert Show, and hosting events and programs on stage, on air, and online. All of that combined makes me both a storyteller and entertainer and a professional nap taker.
When I’m not doing all that, you can find me exploring the city I love and call home, Atlanta, with my friends and the people I love. That usually means eating good food, listening to loud music (and singing along obnoxiously in my car), diving into culture, and laughing… a lot!
What else do you need to know about me? I believe character and kindness matter because good people ultimately win. I believe hard work is the best talent anyone can possess. I think the best thing you can do is life is remember you’re never too high or too low to care about the people around you. I’m still in school, juggling a couple of jobs, tackling a few internships, and just generally trying to keep it all together as I go. Honestly, I’m just trying to figure it all out (and have a little fun along the way!).
It’s the passion of my life to tell stories. I truly believe there are stories out there just waiting to be told wherever we go, and I want to be a part of telling the ones that matter—the ones that start the kind of conversations that change the way we see the world. The times I’ve been able to sit down with a friend, a leader, or even a stranger and share a story, a conversation, an experience—those are the moments that matter most to me. They’re the moments I want to create for other people by sharing their stories.
Because we’ve all got a story to tell.
And I think this one is going to be good….
