As Associate Director of Quantitative Research, Blake manages and supports all phases of research projects and loves finding new and creative ways to dig into the data. He is driven by solving problems and helping clients understand who their consumers are, what makes them tick and how to keep them engaged. Blake takes pride in approaching research with empathy, gaining a broad perspective, and putting himself in the shoes of both the client and the consumer by taking complex, unique methodologies and making them digestible and easy to pull actionable stories from.
Blake received his B.A. in Business Administration and Market Research from The American University in Washington, DC. He has a background in media and entertainment research, and has previously worked in positions at PSB, MarketCast and 2CV.
Blake is from the East Coast, growing up in Philadelphia and spending a decade in Washington, DC. His work and studies have afforded him the ability to also spend time living in France and England. During his time overseas (and spending time in the kitchen with his mother as a child) he developed a deep passion for cooking and learning about how food impacts cultures all around the world. When he’s not in the kitchen or throwing himself into a dataset, you can find him trying out new restaurants, going for long walks on the beach and enjoying all of the outdoor adventure that Los Angeles has to offer.
