Our Cool Factor Just Went Up

Before joining Sköna, Blake was a professional downhill skater. That means that he can go pretty fast on a skateboard. Really fast.

So what do you do all day? I'm going to help the team out with everything from full websites to landing pages and emails. And in addition to that, my background is in photography and film so I'm excited to bring those skills to the company. 

 Where are you from? Born and raised in Piedmont and now living in Oakland.

Besides going really fast on a skateboard or snowboard, what do you like to do? Gardening. Right now I have a small deck garden with a few raised bed planters and small fruit trees. Space is limited so I've been working on growing vertical and maximizing variety in my planter beds. I just added a pomegranate tree, which I plan to keep as a shrub and some sweet peas that just started to produce pods.
