Passion. Experience. Diligence.
Hi, I’m Blake!
I was born in Solihull, England, but grew up all over the Southeast, United States. I’ve lived in Savannah, Atlanta, Athens (GA), Sarasota FL, Auburn AL, and now Northern VA. I met my beautiful wife, Alex, through mutual friends when I moved up to VA and am thankful I made that move every single day. We hung out for the first time two weeks after I moved up, and here we are 5 years later still doing life together and I wouldn’t want it any other way.
I played collegiate golf at Auburn University, but have always enjoyed fast cars and bikes. I got into riding motorcycles very shortly after college and I’m now a certified riding instructor through the Yamaha Champions Riding School (3C certified coach) and the United States Motorcycle Coaching Association (USMCA). And while the motorsports community brings me a lot of joy and fulfillment, I am a dog person more than anything. This is where my story truly begins…
I adopted Huck the day after graduating from the Auburn Humane Society. He was a 5 month old Great Dane/Lab mix sitting in the corner “cell” not barking and looking overwhelmed at his situation. He had no business being in there and from the moment I saw him I knew we were meant to be together. I didn’t care that my apartment at the time wouldn’t allow dogs…I knew we would figure it out. Huck was the definition of a gentle giant and had the best damn soul I’ve ever met. He was by my side every day and taught me more about life and love than I ever imagined possible. Unfortunately, we lost him suddenly due to health complications in 2019 right before Alex and I got married, but his legacy and impact on our family stays with us every single day.
We would not be the same family we are today without him and always remember…BE THE TYPE OF PERSON YOUR DOG THINKS YOU ARE.
