Blake has a deep passion for arts education and is a volunteer teaching artist and administrator for the NYC nonprofit, Artists Striving to End Poverty (ASTEP) which afforded him the opportunity to travel to South Africa and South Florida and provide arts programming for underserved youth.
This summer, Blake will travel to the Philippines and India to collaborate with communities and inspire students to think creatively. Currently, he works with the New York Deaf Theatre on a show called The Signal Season of Dummy Hoy where he is combining his love of American Sign Language with visual storytelling.
