Blake was born and raised in Waterville Vermont. He attended Lamoille Valley Union High School and the University of Vermont, where he majored in Economics. Outside of a short time in Boston, Blake has been a lifelong Vermonter and loves everything the little state has to offer.

Blake and Tyler co-founded Green Mountain Painters when they graduated college in 2005, seeking an opportunity to start their own business, work outside, and improve customer outcomes in a stagnant industry.

Blake currently owns a home in Winooski and loves living in “The Brooklyn of Burlington”.

Outside of co-operating Green Mountain Painters, Blake’s primary summer activity is a deep passion for running and is currently training for a wide variety of races including 2 at the marathon distance.
