About me: What you need to know


Writing is my calling, music is my passion, family makes it easy leave a job I love everyday

Hi, my name is Blake Snow.

I’m a bestselling author, bodacious writer-for-hire, executive consultant, and practicing husband and father. When blogging was still cool, I started keyboarding and became a popular contributor, technology critic, and feature writer to half of the top 20 U.S. media. Today, I help fancy publications and Fortune 500 companies tell better stories with insightful reporting, daring words, and explanatory journalism. I do that in three ways:

  1. I sell custom editorial, articles, reports, ghostwriting, and content strategy to said companies, including requests to “make us sound interesting, find our narrative voice, and reach more readers.”
  2. I serve as an editor-at-large, helping understaffed marketing and communication teams with story ideation, editorial calendars, content production, and writing assignments.
  3. I am a speaker-for-hire and train companies on what 16 years of content marketing have taught me.

When I’m not working, I enjoy logging off, raising children with my soulmate, making records (really!)travel writingsinging in a cover band, exercising, trying to visit all seven continents, and cooking. I chase experiences more than paper. I believe people are inherently good. And if you disagree, you’re wrong.

Email is the best way to contact me. If you’ve made it this far, thanks for reading.

He enjoys cooking for his wife and five children, chauffeuring his kids to activities, and seeing the world. High-energy is his superpower, made possible by his mother’s DNA and a full night’s sleep.
