Dake has more than seventeen years’ experience in production around the world. Born and raised in the Bahamas, he began his career in New York—first in television commercials and feature films, then eventually transitioning into print advertising and editorial content. He couldn’t stay away from the islands forever, so he began dividing his time between NYC and Harbour Island in 1998. He cofounded Shake Productions with Shane Hudepohl in 2001.
