Way back in junior high, Blake’s parents bought him the Star Wars role playing game. Ever since, Blake has enjoyed playing published pen-and-paper games, and when he gets the chance, he even creates them. Beyond taking pleasure in the social aspect of the games, he also enjoys the mathematics the games require.
The kind of creativity and critical thinking skills that these games entail is in part what led him to become a Software Architect at InterWorks. He says he strives daily to learn something new or how to do something better. When he’s not playing role-playing games or architecting intelligent software, Blake also enjoys video games, Japanese anime, literature and theology. Uniquely enough, Blake is also well-versed at playing the euphonium.
