E. Blake Jackson

In September 2012, I joined Saxum Communications as Vice President, Digital. Prior to that, I worked in Strategic Affairs and Public Relations at Chesapeake Energy Corporation (NYSE: CHK), a Fortune 500 company and one of the largest producers of natural gas in the country. By day, I lead a national Digital Communications team building online communities in oil and gas operating areas from Colorado to Texas to Pennsylvania. Prior to joining the marcom ranks, I worked for The Oklahoman and NewsOK.com as a blogger and "backpack" journalist.

In my spare time I organize Ignite, help promote local startups and write about independent music and geek culture. I live in Oklahoma City with my lovely wife, two-year-old daughter and one-year-old son. Winter is my favorite season.

On Saturdays, I cheer for the Michigan Wolverines. If I could meet anyone, living or dead, it would be Theodore Roosevelt.
