ABOUT ME

ABOUT ME

My Name is Blake Lyons. I am a creative professional specializing in design and development of high quality websites that follow today’s design trends.

GET TO KNOW ME BETTER

I spent most of my childhood years in Cincinnati, Ohio. In 1997 I left the frigid cold and moved to sunny Sarasota, Florida. I currently live and work in Sarasota. My passions include web design, photography, Shooting Pool (preferrably 9-ball), Video Games, and cycling.

My interests in web design/development and photography began in high school where I was able to explore the different fine arts. I took classes in pottery, drawing, computer graphics, and photography. After learning all about how to physically create art with my hands, my fascination moved to the computer and how best to share my work and love for art with others.
