Our Story

Blaine & González was formed in order to offer language and communication-related solutions to massive global problems that affect everyone equally across the world.

Originally conceived of as "Approaching Infinity", by Founder Justin Pickering, B&G was dreamed up under that name on Canal Street in New Orleans in 2008. At the time, Mr. Pickering was a Floor Manager (formerly known as "Pit Boss") at Harrah's Hotel & Casino.

One night, while heading to a bar with some colleagues to relax after a long shift, an idea popped into his head as he walked by the water-scarred buildings, ruined by the floods, impossible-to-clean algae, and the general devastation and depression that Hurricane Katrina left in its wake. Much of this damage left behind that has still not been cured or healed in any way to this day.

Shocked, Mr. Pickering thought was "Where are the dump trucks? The garbage removal? The water purification? There are so many missing pieces! Why can't there be a company that just helps everyone clean up everything? How come these industries don't talk to each other?"

Blaine & González's vision is 15 years in the making. Our values reflect Team B&G's collective life experience. We are people from America, Zimbabwe, Sudan, Australia, Spain, Mexico, Egypt, Greece, Italy, Canada and many other wonderful nations all over the world. Many of us have PhDs. Some of us are self-taught at our trades. Some of us have read 1000 books in our lifetime. Some of us play video games and go to the gym for fun in our spare time.

What is compelling about Team B&G's story is that we come from all walks of life, are all different colors of the racial rainbow, speak dozens of languages between us and all agree on ONE THING:

"There is hope to make our home planet better for the future."

That one sentence sums up B&G's fighting spirit and combines with our Four Design Principles - The 4-H's.


And those values and our story add up to who we are as a company: Blaine & González, LLC.
