Blake Hani—Media Relations Associate

Blake, a recent Honors graduate from the College of William & Mary, is a talented young writer, communicator, and creative thinker who is thrilled to have an opportunity to help influence and improve the world around us.

As an English major and Film & Media Studies minor, Blake sharpened his ability to synthesize and articulate complex ideas and information clearly and concisely.  Through his studies, Blake developed a nuanced understanding of how channels of communication and significance are formed, strengthened, and maintained. 

Blake has a great passion for human rights advocacy, focusing much of his academic writing on the representation of marginalized groups within media, literature, and popular culture.  Blake believes strongly in the idea of a global community, and thus the effects of climate change, sustainable business practices, and humanitarian aid are of supreme importance to him, and are issues he is excited to work on every day. 

In his free time, Blake enjoys writing comedy, and moonlights as a stand-up comic.  He also has a great appetite for food and cooking, often spending hours on the weekend perfecting new recipes.  A few of his specialties are Indian curries and masalas, Thai-style fish, Southwest barbecue, and Tex-Mex.
