Me in 20 seconds:
I’m an author, adventurer, entrepreneur, and educator 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.
My work and I have appeared on The Huffington Post, The New York Times, USA Today, BBC Travel, NPR affiliate radio, Psychology Today, and Fox Business.
I give away much of my writing for free.
For most of my adult life I’ve lived nomadically, but I always circle back to High Sierra mountains of Northern California. I’m a passionate trail runner and backpacker.

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.
