Hey, I’m Blake

I’m a multidisplinary designer and researcher currently pursuing my PhD in Computer Science. My research is at the crossroads of HCI and AI, with applications in educational technology, pen-and-stylus based interfaces, and serious games. I’m passionate about designing and building software that helps people learn, grow, and become more creative. I believe technology can vastly accelerate learning and empower people to learn at their own pace.

I believe every design requires empathy for the people using it, a balanced perspective in the approach to designing it, and simplicity in its implementation.

When I’m not designing or doing research, I am likely playing music, traveling, reading, or playing video games – A great source of design inspiration.
