MEET THE TEAM

Team work makes the dream work. Here at BlueKube, we all build systems and brands together. It’s one hell of a good team, and we don’t take ourselves too seriously. Our culture is one that embraces the struggle, and finds satisfaction in solving hard problems together.

BlueKube

We Are

Brandon Kennington

Brandon Kennington

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.

Sam Baumann

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 likes hobbies like candle making and fitness.

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.

Blake Noh

Blake lives to create! and has designed, engineered and worked on 100’s of products. In his 17 years experience he’s had the privilege to work along side some of the biggest retailers in the world.  With a love of learning he continues to grow  challenging himself to be a swiss army knife of skills. Specialties: Industrial Design, Product Design, Toy Design, Project Management, Brand Development, Team Building.

Josh Robert Nay

Josh is an award-winning website designer, app developer, and entrepreneur. He brings depth and extensive experience to the BlueKube team with his talent in web design, SEO and coding. Josh won the October 2017 Golden Web Award and was named among the top 70 web design and marketing entities in Utah by SEOlium in December 2020. He married his best friend and partner-in-crime, Sarah, in September 2019. He has five small dogs and a chicken. In his free time, when he’s not re-watching Star Trek episodes, you’ll find him building and fixing computers

Patricia Fox

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

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 Tsitlakidou

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. 

Julie Kennington

Julie, the BlueKube team’s “go getter”, boasts an impressive background in sales. Julie has enjoyed a diverse professional life in pharmaceutical & biotech sales for Pfizer and Myriad, as well as a fitness studio owner specializing in combining strength training with HIIT method cardio. At the launch of Flexline, Julie headed up our customer relations department, creating content for fitness professionals, and guiding fitness trainers to use Flexline as well as driving sales. When she isn’t busy keeping up with her two children, Julie is putting in work towards her Master’s Degree in Clinical Psychology at Pepperdine University. 

NICOLE HANDY

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 valeza

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.

Peter Mitchell

Peter brings his word wizardry and commando communications skills to BlueKube after an award-winning career as a journalist and international news correspondent. He has filed stories from the White House, Congress, United Nations, NFL, NBA, MLB, Olympics, world-title fights, hurricanes, tornadoes, wildfires, Academy Awards and interviewed every A to Z-List celebrity in Hollywood. He just released his debut comedy novel, Hollywood Junket: Misadventures of a Disinterested Celebrity Journalist.
