Meet the Creative Minds
From Humble Beginnings to Industry Leaders
The BlueKube story begins with a 12-year-old kid named Brandon Kennington. He had a dream to become an inventor and kept a notebook in his back pocket at all times to scribble down product ideas.
As Brandon grew up, his dream never wavered. He received a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering at Purdue University and worked in Silicon Valley in the early 2000s. He designed a portable digital music player that was years ahead of the iPod, as well as the Blue Cube, a digital music device for the entire home.
Brandon decided to start a company to manufacture and sell his products, and BlueKube was born. Today, we are a global product development company and multi-brand ecommerce company with a diverse range of innovative, wow-worthy products. We’re passionate about what we do, and we look forward to turning your dreams into tangible products.
To this day, Brandon still keeps his trusty notebook in his back pocket in case inspiration strikes. Who knows what he’ll come up with next?

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.
Ever wondered how one person can juggle 5 warehouses, international freight, customer service, HR, accounting, and inventory without breaking a sweat? Meet Sam – our very own operations superhero! Rumor has it she’s secretly got a cape tucked away under her work attire, and honestly, we wouldn’t be surprised. When she isn’t orchestrating seamless global operations or chatting with our partners in China under the moonlight, Sam is on her newest adventure: embracing the joys of motherhood with her baby boy. In the rare moments she catches a break, you’ll find her traveling, delving into athletic pursuits, crushing fitness goals, or simply cherishing quality time with her family. Cheers to our unstoppable force!
Maria Elena Duron
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. She hosts the weekly twitter feed “BrandChat”. Porch Potty wouldn’t be as successful without her. She literally built that brand from the ground up.

Ashley Del Real
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Tess received a B.A. in English Literature and a minor in Dance from the University of Washington. It’s pretty fitting, considering her two loves are books and dance. After college, she moved to New York City to work as a copywriter at a top fashion house. Independent and adventurous to the core, she left the corporate world to go freelance and is now a proud BlueKuber. When she’s not writing social ads or strategizing the next email campaign, she loves traveling, doing the Wordle, and dancing the Argentine tango.
Daniela, our skilled Social Media Specialist, infuses BlueKube’s ideas with her creative touch. Her journey from virtual assistant to social media and digital marketing has sparked a lifelong passion. With expertise in social media and a background in graphic design, Daniela’s innovative thinking consistently generates captivating content. Beyond the digital realm, Daniela finds joy in painting during her spare time. Additionally, she dedicates herself to practicing and refining her English language skills, recognizing the value of effective communication as a bilingual professional in the interconnected world of social media. Collaboration holds great importance to her, as she understands the mutual benefits of both giving and receiving support from others.
Whitney is the dedicated UX/UI Designer at BlueKube. With a mission to craft stunning and user-friendly experiences, she brings creativity, attention to detail, and a thirst for knowledge to every project. Whitney’s design journey commenced at a young age when she uncovered her natural talent for seamlessly blending aesthetics and functionality. When she’s not immersed in XD or delving into extensive research, she embraces the joys of motherhood with her little ones. Cherishing quality time with her family, she finds delight in traveling, golfing, and continually pursuing new knowledge.
