The founder of BlueKube and the inventor behind most of our products. Brandon wrote “I want to be an INVENTOR” in his Goals Journal at age 10. He has never looked back. BlueKube was his first company started in 2001 and his vision was it would someday be an “Idea Lab” where new ideas would come to life and find their way into peoples homes. It is still that vision today.
Director of Operations+
Sam is the master of all things operations and logistics. It takes a certain skill set to manage 5 warehouses, international freight, customer service, HR, Accounting, and Inventory. We think she wears a cape under her work clothes. She is that good. If she isn’t communicating with China in the middle of the night, she enjoys traveling, candle making, and fitness.
Maria Elena Duron
Director of Marketing+
When Maria is building marketing strategies, she is in her “happy place”. She has been doing eCommerce Marketing for BlueKube over 10 years. She is also a certified Google Analytics Master Teacher.

While most kids were playing with hot wheels, Barbies and coloring books, Patricia was writing skits and plays for her friends and classes to perform. After fifteen years in the restaurant industry, Patricia made the leap, turning her love of words into a career in writing. Like any good story-teller, Patricia enjoys the challenge of turning a good plot, complete with heroes, antagonists and nail-biting twists and turns, into copy that aims to solve real life problems for BlueKube’s customers.
Ashley Del Real
Customer Service Specialist+
Ashley’s natural tendencies to care for others and willingness to help wherever she’s needed has made her an indispensable part of our team. If she receives a question that she does not have a ready answer for (which is admittedly rare), she is relentless in pursuit of an answer, something that many of BlueKube’s reviews praises her by name for doing. An avid crafter, when she’s not helping customers, you’ll find her sewing, drawing, painting and much more. She keeps herself sharp with strategy games and a thirst for reading.
Partnership Acquisition Coordinator+
Christina is BlueKube’s resident social media specialist. Her thirst for adventure and challenge made the traditional job routine unappealing. Upon graduating University, Christina immediately pursued freelancing full-time, working with brands based around the world to build their presence and grow strong communities. Her hidden talent to push engagement through creative boosters has made her an essential on the BlueKube team. When she’s not “cracking the code” of a new platform feature, Christina is travelling to some remote location to freedive.
Community Management Specialist+
Nicole is well accustomed to the fast-past, bump and slide life of an executive assistant. Her extensive experience ranges from a fintech startup of an NFL superstar to multi-million-dollar companies. Always one of the first in the know about social media trends, Nicole brings her unique perspective and dogged determination to BlueKube. Mother to an ever-curious young boy that keeps her busy when she’s not scheduling out our latest Pinterest strategy, Nicole’s love for Gummi Bears has inspired an internal hashtag (#blamenicole) whenever a sweet tooth strikes any BlueKube team member!
Alvin’s humble beginnings inspired him to be the resourceful, tenacious and talented graphic designer he is today. He began his career as a freelance artist in 2008 and continues to scour the internet for training sources that help develop his keen artistic eye further. Based in the Phillipines, Alvin manages the timezone difference between him and the rest of the BlueKube team with style, all while balancing parenting duties. Having lived close to water his whole life, it’s no surprise that his hobbies include fishing and walking along the beach.

Dianne Honorio thrives in high-pressure environments. Having managed properties for six years and trading for JPMorgan & Chase, her initiative and go get’em attitude make her a huge asset to the BlueKube’s administrative and customer service teams. Quick to identify new trends, earlier this year Dianne made the leap into NFT’s and Cryptocurrency trading. Working towards her master’s degree in Public Health at Deakin University does not slow down her favorite hobby; she is a notorious globetrotter that is ready to get out and travel again.
Product Development Engineer+
Zac Mahoney’s passion for bringing ideas to life makes him a perfect fit in our Engineering Team. With a degree in Mechanical Engineering, he tackles the challenges of developing great products and seeing how existing products can be improved. A competitor at heart, when Zac’s not scoring BlueKube wins, you can find him outdoors with his family or playing just about any sport.
Melody is a proud New Englander who spent most of her upbringing in the Midwest. She always dreamed of living in her home state and having a successful career. Now, she writes blog posts and other written content for BlueKube. Although she would describe herself as a writer today, Melody had dreams of being a professional photographer. As a kid, she loved taking photos of the family pets and admired wildlife photography in National Geographic magazine. Melody was encouraged to sign up for a writing class in college, and, for the first time in her life, she was told that she could make a career out of writing. Now, Melody loves writing and fully leans into her natural abilities to tell stories and inspire others.
Julia started her career in the corporate world, creating wine portfolios for a large Ukrainian spirits and wine company. In 2016, wanderlust struck, and Julia made the bold transition to the freelance world. She zeroed in on social media management and media buying as her preferred niche. Along with her boyfriend, Julia began her travels in Thailand and spent the better part of 5 years traveling all over South-Eastern Asia. Now, she calls Argentina her current home. When she’s not deep in BlueKube’s ad analytics, she’s discovering hidden, local gems by bike or motorbike.
Watching Joanne in action is much like watching a conductor of a world-renown orchestral production. She brings all the parts together at our factories, coordinating the entire process with precision. Joanne also oversees our rigorous tests, ensuring every product meets our impeccable standards. From there, she’s the point person for getting our products shipped to the correct warehouse. Having been with us since 2008, she’s a indispensable part of all we do.
Hailing from a small town in the Pacific Northwest, Caden is nothing short of a web development prodigy. He began his career in high school after teaching himself to code.

Being an avid basketball player and online gamer, he missed the team element at work, which led him to BlueKube.
