Who is he?

  • Blaise’s interest in sports television production began in the fall of his junior year of high school. Following a difficult back injury from the prior year, he felt out-matched by his former soccer teammates. Blaise knew that he no longer had the physical ability to keep pace, but still wanted to be an active member of the club. Shortly afterwards, Blaise discovered local television opportunities and realized that he could actively support his team in a new way.
