Blake is a talented and award-winning Director, Writer, Actor (and one of those people who brightens a room by simply walking into it). Around here, we all believe he is the real life Ted Lasso. His in-depth knowledge of the multi-faceted world of entertainment, nurturing communication style and genuine positivity, brings out the very best in the people and projects he works on.
Blake is especially masterful at helping our clients create humorous and whimsical short-form video content for broadcast, web, and social platforms. His 10 years of live improvisational comedy performance, and appreciation of play both in front of and behind the camera, make him uniquely qualified for both the messaging and execution of commercial campaigns that give customers a laugh and generate more business for our clients.
After graduating from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and earning a Communications degree in Media Production, he had various stints abroad and in Los Angeles, before returning home to the South. Today, his comedic work as a Director and On-Screen Talent has been recognized by the Sundance Film Festival and featured on viewers screens regionally and nationally.
And Blake has had zero trouble finding humor in his own personal life! Fun side story: Blake actually used to live across the street from La Storia headquarters in Charlotte, NC and in 2015 when a tree fell on his apartment, company founders - RC Walker and Geoff Walker - let him live at La Storia for 2 weeks!
Today, he lives just down the street from said apartment and is recently (and happily!) married to his wife Hilary, a visual artist, whom he met during a hurricane and married during a pandemic!
