Blake’s focus includes leading the team with a (sometimes unhealthy) hyper focus on championing creative collaboration and clarity. Blake also serves many of our clients, such as World Vision, the City of Milwaukee, the Bader Foundation, and many others as a strategic and creative partner. Outside of PlainJoe, Blake serves his community as a bi-vocational pastor and social entrepreneur who has a passion to captivate and reform culture by elevating the stories and value of the nameless. Recently, Blake founded Restoration Roasters, a specialty coffee bar that provides hands-on vocational training for the homeless of his community. Blake also serves as the teaching pastor of Church at the Mission, Volunteer Director of the Corona Norco Rescue Mission, and Chief Executive Officer of Ethur.
Prior to joining the team, Blake held various C-Suite roles with non-profit organizations domestically and around the world, overseeing operations, finance, and marketing. Blake graduated with honors from Azusa Pacific University with a degree in Accounting and, yes, he can still whip out a spreadsheet like no one’s business.
PlainJoe has partnered with some of the most inspiring and recognizable Sacred Storytellers of our modern era. Check out a few of our favorite (and most notable!) projects.
