Blake is multi-faceted with a Bachelor’s Degree in Music from McNally Smith College of Music, Saint Paul, MN, as well as being QuickBooks® Online Advanced Certified. He has been successfully managing his own business finances for several years and is excited to be on the Gem Numerics Team.
“I’m a perfectionist, naturally good with numbers, and have applied that approach to managing budgets and funds for my businesses for years. Accounting skills are very useful across many fields.”
Blake’s strong suit is overcoming technological obstacles, specifically within QuickBooks. He’s another practical problem solver on this crack team.
Originally from Melbourne, Florida, Blake moved to Minnesota for college and never looked back. Music is his passion and he enjoys playing guitar and played out frequently with his bands before the pandemic.
“Lately I have been volunteering my time, connections, and skills organizing online events where people can finally hear ‘live’ music and musicians who have been out of work can perform again.”
