Armed with an English degree from Ripon College and an MBA from Chicago’s Stuart School of Business, Blake has thrived for over two decades in the shadowed back-office realms of the financial industry.
After gradate school and a seven year run as Chief Compliance Officer for a Chicago-based hedge fund, Blake was a founding member of two high-tech startup firms that specialized in the surveillance and investigation of electronic communication and trade order records for leading banks and energy trading firms.
He can most easily be found at literary conventions, hand-selling hardcovers to strangers, hosting writing workshops, award-winning, and Beer and Books parties.
He currently solves financial crimes in Chicago during the day and gives life to wild fantasies during the blackest hours of night.
