Portrait of a GFFer: Blake Thames

Who would ever have imagined Blake with the shaggy-hair look? Blake is a member of Lawrence Cosby’s studio and if you are ever looking for him…you will find him where he should be…at his desk. He’s extremely friendly, very talented and ALWAYS willing to help out a neighbor (with his vast Photoshop skills). Read more about Blake below…

  1. I have literally walked uphill both ways in the snow.
  2. I married my high school sweet heart. She was captain of the cheerleading squad, but I was not the starting quarterback.
  3. I’d never been to Texas before interviewing at GFF (unless you count a layover).
  4. I’ve never read a single Harry Potter book, but I played quidditch in college.
  5. My wife and I recently got a chocolate labradoodle puppy, and even more recently, celebrated the loss of her razor sharp baby teeth.
  6. I’m a die-hard buckeyes football fan, despite having never been to the state of Ohio.
  7. I studied furniture design for a semester at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in Copenhagen. I was often mistaken as a Dane, until I opened my mouth to speak. Jeg kan ikke sige fem ord i dansk i dag.
  8. I am color blind.
  9. Each week I spend at least 4 hours hanging out with 7th grade boys as a volunteer with Watermark student ministries.
  10. I decided to be an architect when I was only 8 years old at the suggestion of my grandmother. It turns out she didn’t really know what an architect was, but it seems to have worked out.
