Boyan Blocka


Boyan started his first business (a computer training and support company) while in University. On graduation, he sold that firm and started another, developing custom CMSes (Content Management Systems) for small firms in the days before WordPress.

Swayed by life (namely the .dotcom crash of 2000), Boyan came to Vancouver on the coattails of a film scholarship and job as a Television Producer. He then moved into advertising, earning his stripes as a technology, copy, presentation designer and speech writer for agencies and clients like Alteryx, Box, Cossette, Crystal Decisions, DataSift, Google, Nokia, and SAP/BusinessObjects. Merging his marketing and web dev firm with Kyosei in 2003 (and marrying Andrea in 2006), Boyan today leads our product, marketing and operational efforts and is our coveted Strategic Futurist – helping clients navigate change, disruption & complex technology topics with his popular humor, optimism and can do charm.

Boyan holds a B.Sc. in Archaeology and a minor in Psychology focused on Neuroscience—making him a rare blend of past, present, and future mindedness.
