Blake has been a part of the Canyon Springs team since mid-2013 and helps with Marketing, Communications, Social Media, Outreach and Events. After moving to North County with his expecting wife in 2010 and attending Canyon Springs a few times, he (and his wife) was instantly hooked. Soon, he became a Small Group Leader of one of the “Young Family” groups. Blake started helping out more with some of the Church’s Marketing & Communications in various capacities and before long, Blake was added to the Staff to assist with the Church’s Outreach, Social Media and recently, an overhaul of this very website.
More About Blake, From Blake
I am an entrepreneurial junkie, and thanks to God, am allowed to follow the cliche “do what you love” worklife. I am married to Linnea, an elementary school teacher (I designed her site 😉 here at EB Scripps Elementary, and have two crazy children, Lucy and Landon. Yes, I am the odd duck being the only Miller without the 2-syllable first name beginning with “L”. Yet oddly, it was me who came up naming both of our kids with “2 syllable Ls” after my wife, Linnea. I’m a runner, and love Photography too – mostly of people and events. God has given me the brains, energy and drive to get myself into a lot of stuff . . .
I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Marine Engineering Systems from the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy. I built and test drove big ships and deep sea drill rigs for just over 10 years. After those 10+ years in the Corporate world, I jumped ship and started a few small businesses. I am the Owner & Creative Director of MITO Studios here in San Diego – a small Digital, Web & Print Marketing company. We help businesses and organizations better themselves in todays “digital space”. Switching gears a bit, I also provide DJ/MC, Lighting and AV services for weddings, events and fundraisers as owner and DJ/MC of Pro Motion Entertainment. And finally, I’m the director of The VAVi Running club, a half/full marathon training club here in San Diego. As my aunt always said of me . . . I have eight hamsters in the cage. God keeps those hamsters constantly fed and cranking on the wheel.
I have been so blessed to have been introduced to Canyon Springs Church to not only become closer to Christ, but to offer some of my strengths and abilities to help Canyon Springs reach the next One.
