Blake currently lives in Portland, Oregon and works in Vancouver, Washington for the Fort Vancouver Regional Library District. He is the Staff Development Coordinator, which gives him the opportunity to interact with all the various departments of a public library system.
Blake has been working in public libraries since the early 1990s, with one year in the early 2000s working in an academic library. He loves the role of public libraries in society, and will be working on getting his masters degree in library science so he’s able to contribute at a higher level. His undergraduate degree is in computer science.
