Me in 20 seconds:
I’m an author, educator, and adventurer who helps young people become more self-directed.
I design and lead multi-month experiential programs for ages 14-20 through my company Unschool Adventures.
I’m the author of three books related to self-directed learning, and I’ve appeared on The Huffington Post, The New York Times, USA Today, BBC Travel, NPR affiliate radio, Psychology Today, and Fox Business.
I choose not to live any one place year-round, which I’ve written about at How to Live Nowhere.

Blake Boles is open-minded, interested in everything, courageous, and passionately committed to individual development. I would expect good things to happen for young people who had the good fortune to hang out with Blake for a while.
