Blake specializes in building sound, secure, and scalable infrastructures and smart contracts. As an engineer at John Hancock, he spent his time automating the painfully arduous processes of old-money finance, optimizing investor workflows, and conducting artificial intelligence research. In his earlier years, he also cofounded the fitness start-up Vastus, where he developed the entire production-level application from 0 to 1. In his free time, he enjoys staying fit, collecting watches / pokémon, and building legos. He also used to dabble in stop-motion videos, so if you ever meet him in person, be sure to ask for a clip.
