Blake lived in Japan in 2005 and 2010 through exchange programs in high school and college, respectively. After
working for a Japanese travel company in the US for several years, he made his way back to Japan in 2017 to
complete a Master of International Relations program in Kyoto.
Passionate about research and problem-solving, working at Sugata not only allows Blake to utilize his knowledge to help clients better realize their marketing goals in Japan, but to deepen his own understanding of the Japanese experience.
In his free time, Blake enjoys visiting third-wave coffee shops, drinking Japanese craft beer, listening to Japanese indie and Korean pop music, working out, and following news and politics.
