Blayk is a research analyst on Escalent’s Consumer Goods & Retail team. He joined the company in 2019 and brings a fresh perspective, having studied marketing and data analytics at the University of Central Arkansas while working in performance arts, retail, and consumer technology. He applies his education, interests, and prior work experience to a variety of project engagements across the Consumer & Retail, Tech and Telecom teams, and works closely with clients to develop and execute meaningful research that answers their toughest questions. Blayk’s love of learning and ever-curious nature has led him to not only seek out a better understanding of the complex analyses behind the data, but also to find ways to translate those same esoteric concepts to help inform strategic business decisions. When he takes his market research hat off, Blayk spends his free time performing as a juggler and magician, and he can often be found on the weekends entertaining at a variety of events. His wife is also a juggler, and at their wedding, they chose to replace the traditional first dance with a “first juggle” as a surprise for their guests.
