Blake spent much of his professional career in the technology space, but his real passion is unplugging from the modern digital world, reading and being outdoors in nature. He especially loves running and skiing long distances through the mountains. Some of his fondest memories of late include finishing the UTMB 100-mile running race around Mt. Blanc, “WOOFing” with his family at a permaculture farm in Norway, and living and traveling out of a van for 6-months with his wife and then 2-year old daughter.
When Blake became a papa, he started thinking deeply about the type of education and caregiving he wanted for his kids, eventually falling in love with the Waldorf approach. Blake has spent a good deal of time and energy starting and building companies, and at this point in his life, couldn’t think of a more worthwhile endeavor for his family and community than helping to start Rainbow Gardens here in Northfield.
