Blake has spent nearly a decade building and scaling web applications for a variety of organizations. He was first drawn to software engineering when considering what was “under the hood” of his favorite music production software, eventually graduating magna cum laude from UC Davis with a B.S. in Computer Science and Engineering. Due at least partly to his own adverse high school experience, Blake is committed to Abl’s mission to transform education for future generations of students. Outside of work, he enjoys outdoor running, producing electronic music, and studying Japanese and Italian.
