About Me

Hi, my name is Blake and you’re currently on my blog page. Thanks for coming!


I’m currently a first-year MBA student at UChicago’s Booth School of Business. It puts me in a great position to track down all sorts of tech news and keep up on trends in technology. I boil that down into the insights I share in this blog.

I’m from the north suburbs of Chicago, have 3 siblings, and received a BS in Business from Indiana’s Kelley School of Business in 2013. After some consulting, I jumped into startups before applying to schools.

I’ve got interests across the board. I read a lot of business books, but round it out with some history and fantasy. I’m a graduate of Second City’s improv program. I love Marvel movies (and in a past life, comic books). I’ve chosen school as the perfect time to become a masochist and work out in the mornings. I was invited to the Chicago Swordplay Guild after completing their entry-level class, which I highly recommend for history/fitness nerds.  I built my own PC, and then did the same for a couple friends. I am very excited to reach the point in life where I can responsibly own a dog.

The J stands for Jack, my legal first name. My parents have no defensible reason for adding this complication to my life. Blake is short for Blakeney. The X stands for my confirmation name, which I never use, but jbdavis is taken on all social media. And let’s be honest, it doesn’t pop.

If you have any other questions, you can check out my Linkedin, or just email me at jbxdavis@gmail.com. Thanks!
